and what a trip it's been!


I can hardly believe how this pattern his taken the online quilting community by storm! It's been wonderfully amazing to see all the gorgeous Scrappytripalongs pop up all over Instagram, Flickr and the blogaverse. They have all been so different and unique, and I love how this quilt really expresses the individual personality of each quilter - so much so that I could easily pick the creators of many of them out before even knowing who made it.


And this is my finished top. I think it is totally 'me'. I am pretty much smitten with the chaos here and I think it is going to be a great companion to my Scrap Hoover quilt. This one started out as a scrap bin buster, but soon I ran out of scraps big enough for the pattern. After that, I raided stash. I love how this is a blend of scraps I may not have otherwise used and many of my most treasured prints.


I'm just awaiting an order for some backing from Pink Castle Fabrics (Brenda, if you didn't know, was one of the other original firestarters of this whole craze!) and then I will be quilting this one myself. I'm thinking big swirls, but we'll see. 


I want to thank each and every one of you who has jumped on this Scrappytripalong! As fast as this quilt is to make, given my track record for speed this would've taken me weeks to complete if it hadn't been for all of you inspiring and encouraging me along.


So what do we make next?

  5. Wow, what a beautiful quilt. I always feel so inspired by your work. Can't wait to see what you make next. I really should't read your posts, because I'm still working on my Maple Leaf Rag quilt that you inspired a long, long time ago!

    Yours is GORGEOUS!!

  10. Beauty! I've cut strips, but not sewn a bit. I doubt my trip will be as pretty. My stash of scraps is limited to leftovers. More suited for Katie & Thomas's Scrap xxxxx quilts. Congrats on the finish. Swirls would be perfect for this.

  12. It's gorgeous! And I love how everyone is coming together for this impromptu, totally stress free quilt along. I have 6 blocks to go and can't wait to get back to the sewing machine. And even though I'm mostly using fabric from my unloveds pile, I love how its turning out!
