I couldn't help it. So many folks were doing the Scrappy Trip Along that I finally decided to give a block a try. It was so much fun and once I had my 6 fabric strips cut it only took 25 minutes to sew the block together. I'm not sure what my finished project will be (a lap quilt?, something cute to drape over the couch?....I'll figure it out). I know I want some good pinks and oranges in there and something dark to make it interesting and not too washed out.
Here are my first two. I re-positioned some of the strips from the picture above in order to have the dark color going through the middle on all of them. I like it! And, as a former fabric store owner, I have oodles of scraps to play with.
I even splurged on a 2 1/2 inch ruler (normally 18.99 but I had a 50% off coupon). So I'm building a stash of strips and having some fun. No rush, just fun.
You can go to the flickr page here, find the neato tutorial here, use the hashtag #ScrappyTripAlong to find it on Instagram, or just google "Scrappy Trip Along" or "Scrappy Trip Around The World" for oodles and oodles of inspiration. Let me know if you can fight the temptation to join in!
