Some of the strips in this Trip Around the World aren't full width. If I had enough fabric I cut one extra strip and then cut a piece from it to finish the length. In the case of the second pink fabric I only had enough to fill in on 2 stratas. I went to my 30s repros scrap bag and found a substitute that is about the same value. I will have a few strata loops left over so I'm not sure how many times it will appear in the quilt.
The cactus with the orange blossoms decided to have one more round.
Next week I'll have 2 more blossoms.
Thanks everyone yesterday for your kind comments about Otis and his quilt top. I hope he read them.
