Pink Trip Pattern

Take a trip with me!
A Pink trip!
A Pink scrappy vintage sheet trip!

I love pairing a great fabric with the 
vintage look and feel of bed sheets.

Way back when, I made this gem.
Then I jumped on the Leaders and Enders bandwagon.  
I saw Bonnie's idea for her Scrappy Trip Around the World 
and I knew exactly what I wanted to do! 
It's been waiting patiently 
by the sewing machine for me to sew it together, 
in between other projects.

Yummy flannel backing here!

I've written up how I did it 
and applied Bonnie's idea. 
Get the PDF here
You'll need to visit her page 
to see how to put the block together.
I think it's brilliant and I loved making this quilt. 
Bonnie has made her block with 6 rows.  
I did 5 rows. 

So join me on this trip. 
No jet lag.
No x-ray scans. 
No annoying tray in your lap 
when the fellow in front of you
decides to stretch out.
