Scrappy Trip Around the World block!

6:30-8:30 pm

See this tutorial at Quiltville blog

You will need:  Sewing machine, basic sewing supplies, seam ripper (A MUST), rotary cutter and ruler.   Of course your fabric...a minimum of 6 2-1/2 inch strips to make 1 block, more if you want to be ambitious and make more blocks.   

OSR has their new Studio Go! to cut the strips for you, so give that a Go!
