Scrappy Summer #3

Continuing my series of small Scrappy Summer quilts I am proud to show off ‘HOPSCOTCH’. It turned out exactly like I envisioned it.   Totally AWESOME!   It finishes 42″ x 56″ using 35 of the 64 dark tone on tone fat quarters fabrics and a beige Kona solid for the background.

When I finished my Scrappy Summer #1, I asked my brother to see if he could come up with a name. It is a combination of ‘Trip Around The World’ and ‘Checkerboard’. Paul suggested ‘Hopscotch’. I liked the name but thought ‘Trip Around The Checkerboard’ fit the quilt a bit better. BUT…the name ‘Hopscotch’ stuck in my head. It inspired me to design this quilt.

If you are new to my blog – here is Scrappy Summer #1 – Trip Around The Checkerboard’ and the blog post showing #2 – Greek Cross is here. I am already working on Scrappy Summer #4 and #5 and have an idea for #6. This has been a fun project and great that the fabrics are already chosen and ready for me to use. That being said it did take me a LONG time to gather, cut and starch 64 fat quarters.

Summer seems to be flying by too quickly but here are a couple of photos of my garden.

    Hopscotch is the perfect name and I really like the quilt design, nicely done. A little late to the poll booth but FYI, I’d go borderless on the greek cross.

    I agree that Hopscotch is perfect for this quilt. What a smart brother you have. I saw Trip Around the Checkerboard in progress, too. It looks like you’re having lots of fun.

      Ann, I agree – my brother is awesome. He also holds the title of “Webmaster’ for my blog and all things computer related. Normally, I design and make bigger quilts. It is a big time commitment and I do find myself along the way some what bored and wanting a new project. The Scrappy Summer series of small quilts has given me more an opportunity to play. Since this is just for fun, I don’t fuss over the decisions as much as I normally do. I have a couple more ideas in the works. Thanks for visiting and stop by again to see what the next one looks like.
