For some reason, when I think of a trip around the world, I think of a safari - so I thought this fabric that I recently bought on a whim would be perfect for the backing.
Also on my design wall are a few x and + blocks. Someday they may become a scrappy quilt. I just make one now and then when I'm in the mood.
There's a tutorial for making this block here, and here's a quilt (not mine) halfway to finish. I love the chaotic scrappy look!
