Well, I'm back at it. I won this top at the AQSG silent auction in Charleston, SC, last month. Here's what it used to look like - it's a poor photo and from this distance it looks much better than it did in person, trust me!
It was poorly made in many ways but the squares are a nice size to do something with (3.5" finished -give or take) and there are some great fabrics in it so....I started in.
That stopped me for a minute. I had never thought of that! But I went back to ripping. It just seems the right thing to do and preserves the most fabric.

|I just have to wonder. |
How could anyone think this could 'work'?
Have you joined the group that thinks I'm 'crazy'?
Can't blame you.
I like to keep some element of the original in at least one of the resulting pieces so maybe the first one will use the Trip Around the World pattern pattern in some way.
For now, I'll put this shoe box next to the shoe box from the last top I ripped....I've made two doll quilts from that one already.
Links to the two posts about that ripping project as well as a link to ripping out some embroidered blocks and what I did with those:
