Linus Quilt

Here's a Scrappy Trip Around the World, for a girl Linus Quilt, yet unquilted.  The SAME fabrics are used in each of the 48, 12-inch blocks.  This clever quilt originally came from
- thank you bunches, Bonnie!  The finished top always looks so cool, no matter what fabrics are used.  Even if one uses a variety of fabrics in each block, I like to use one constant in all the blocks - pink in this case - to provide continuity.  

The backing will be 6 x 8, 10-inch squares, not yet put together.  Here is a closeup of the butterflies in the border.  I named this one "Blue Skies and Butter Flys".  8-)) It is a little large for a small child, but good for the older kids who sometimes get lost in the attention to little ones.  This quilt finishes at 59" x 83".  My backing squares finish at 60 x 80. mmm, do you see my problem?  This is called "Poor Planning"!

Scrappy trip quilts are so fun to make! Yours is very pretty, some little girl is going to love it!

A really nice quilt to donate, Elaine.
Uh-oh, how will you remedy the situation? Could you sew a long strip between the rows of backing squares (or between every other row), and another long strip down each side? Do you have enough of any of those fabrics left, or have you cut them all into squares? : )

Ha, Ha . . . that poor planning thing happens here, too! Pretty sure you will figure out how to make things work!
