Scrappy Trip Along
Inspiration grabbed me while Instagraming. The photographs of the Scrappy Trip Along, which so many of my instagram friends were making, looked so interesting as they were creating fun full patterned quilts. I just had to have one as well! Sheepishly I started cutting with no thought about the end result, I just sewed strips together and it felt good.
I thought I would start with creating blocks for a baby sized quilt but I loved constructing the quilt so much I kept on making more blocks and so the quilt is still growing. I am now planning to make a throw for my couch. (Well that is my aim, bit tricky with Summer school holidays.)
This is half the quilt. I am trying to keep the dark blue squares in the same place to create pattern.
Here is the original inspiration from I'm a Ginger Monkey's quilt.
Quiltville has kindly written up the tutorial on how to make this quilt. If you are keen to make something random and a lot of fun–and yes use up all your favourite fabrics, you know the ones you love and have stashed for a while–then it is a fun quilt to make for sure.
I have been adding all my fabrics to this quilt and watch as it grows with fascination. All the fabrics that are not my own designs I purchased from Patchwork on Pittwater in Mona Vale.
The Instagram hash tag is #scrappytripalong. So you can share what you are sewing by adding the tag.
More sewing and photographing for me.
