scrappy tripping

 









I've not sewed much at all since the beginning of the year... time to change that and start another quilt or two! Always on the lookout for ways to use up my scrappy stash, I decided to make another 'scrappy trip around the world' quilt. I played for a few days, pulling fabric from my baskets, making little piles, and then narrowing things down a tad. 

I'm going with a selection of mainly pastels for my scrappy trips, with a slightly deeper medium/dark for the centre diagonal of each block, creating that diamond effect when four blocks are joined together.
I intend to use an assorted mix of fabric designers, including Kaffe and Jennifer Paganelli {inspired by Michelle's recent leader/ender project} And I'm using Bonnie Hunters tried & true free scrappy trips pattern, {which you can find here}. 

Four blocks up on the design wall today!

  2. LOVELY! I might just pull out a stack of my KFC fabrics and plan a scrappy trips. I've made several but haven't been in love with any of them. Need to look at their photos to see what it is about them that hasn't thrilled me so I can avoid that this time around. SQUIRREL ALERT!

  6. I think I also spotted the beginning of this beautiful quilt on Instagram and left a few words, it becomes quite confusing trying to remember exactly where I left my comment! Regardless I love the fabrics you're using here Linda, so fresh and clear.

  8. Funnily enough I was just looking at a TAW on another blog, but yours is particularly appealing.
