Finish It Up Friday ~ Scrappy Trips

I finished up my Scrappy Trips quilt a while back. I’m finally getting around to sharing it.

This started with this jelly roll of Boundless Ombré from Craftsy. I originally planned to use this gray for the background. I’m glad I went with the white.

In this next photo, you get a sneak peek at my backing surprise!

I found this at a discount shop a while back and grabbed it as I knew it would make a great backing someday! It was marked 100% Cotton on the selvedge.

I love how it turned out!

Have a great day!

    Beautiful quilt Katy! The backing is a wonderful surprise too. It looks like a twin quilt. I always wondered how far a jelly roll would go. Congrats on a great finish!
