It's a Scrappy Trip-along!


I didn't really mean to do it, but I started a new quilt this week. I have a zillion WIPs I should finish, but the stress of the holidays and the big finish of my Swoon and Field Study quilts made me cave. And I've been longing to start another super scrappy quilt. This design has been on the front of my back burner for almost a year now after seeing this one and this one and this one.


As soon as I began, I was possessed. These blocks are addictive! And apparently contagious, too - suddenly everyone is making a Scrappy Trip Around the World! Katy, Rita, Lindsay and Brenda are all making one - Brenda has even started a Flickr group. There are also rumors that Amber, Ashley, Heather, Laura, Dana and too many more to name are joining in! I'll be posting my pics on Instagram too. I'm lucyandnorman there if you'd like to follow me.


This is what a finished block looks like. You just need 2.5 by 16 inch strips, six per block. Put them together, and they look like this-


I used the tutorial over here. It's easy, a ton of fun and so satisfying to use up all this scrappage and stashage.

Obviously I'm going as scrappy as possible but specific color combinations are pretty too if this is too wild for you. But I've got a stash to bust so scrappy it is for me.


I hope to see you over on Flickr and IG. And Happy New Year to all - let's send 2012 out with a scrappy bang!

  12. Didn't get to send 2012 out with a scrappy bang due to beach-time but loved every moment of gorgeous eye-candy via instagram and the lead up to everyone elses....thanks for the wonderful inspiration and happy 2013 to you and your fam! (I have a set of tumbler wine glasses on my wish list for this year....!)

  17. Well, I'm in the process of sorting and organizing my stash now. I guess as soon as I'm done it's as good a time as any to jump in; now that I know how many scraps I have! :)

    Count me in!

  21. WHO actually started this frenzy? I want to mention in a post....

    ReplyDelete
  22. I got sucked in too -- don't remember when, but I won a scrap box from Me & My Sister, their new-at-the-time Amelia fabric. Perfect start for "Amelia's Adventure" scrappy trip. So, here goes!

  23. I first saw this on the Buttontree Lane blog -www.buttontreelane.blogspot.com.au - and as much as I was tempted told Michelle that I neded to finished some WIPs first. Well after seeing so many beautiful blocks by many who have taken the plunge, I too started today. I was actually a little shocked at how much fabric I had in my stash (hubby was not though). I have decided to make 20 blocks to begin with and cant wait to start their assembly tomorrow. Thanks for sharing yours, it is lovely, but I must admit my favourite so far (no offence intended) is by the very talented Emma Jansen of Balllarat Patchwork in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. I reocmmend people checking out Emma's via her facebook page, Ballarat Patchwork, as well as Michelle's at Buttontree Lane Blogspot.
