Have you heard about the
Scrappy Trip Along?
There are photos popping up all over Instagram
(lilabellelane if you want to add me)
As you know I like to make at lest one scrap quilt a year and lets face it,
my Scrap quilt from last year (Bottled Rainbow), although it looks great, it didn't really use
up a lot of my scraps so this one is going to make up for that shortfall.
I also have another Scrap quilt on my to do list this year, so who knows
it might be a bit of a "Scrappy Year".
Anyway, back to the Scrappy Trip Along :O)
With all the photos popping up and my desire to use my scraps,
because lets face it, why save them if you don't use them?
I have jumped in head first.
Each block is 12" finished and I have no idea how big I am
going to make mine. At the moment I am thinking it would
be great Picnic Quilt so it might be large :o)
Here are my first 4 blocks
I only started mine tonight and I apologise for the dodgy night time photo.
I already had my scrap boxes out working on something else (I will share soon)
so now their contents are well and truly all over the floor!
You can find the tutorial HERE.
If you want to see more of the Scrappy Trip quilts there is also a Flickr Group HERE.
Please Beware though....it's addicting!
The three eldest children are off on a little Train trip tomorrow to go see their Grandparents for a few days so hopefully I will have a chance to get some more blocks made whilst they are away. I am sure Lily will keep me busy until 5pm each day, then when Dad gets home she will focus on him and I can sneak off to my sewing space :o) Sounds like a plan right?
