Well, just as I was getting momentum on some projects that I actually need to get done because they have deadlines, along comes a viral quilt-along that I just can't resist. I saw it get going on instagram a little while ago (I am adrianneonthewindyside if you want to find me), and it has since taken off, with an instagram hashtag (#scrappytripalong) and a flickr group. Check it out, but be warned - it is very difficult to resist jumping on this bandwagon. In case you are keen to join in, this is the tutorial from Quiltville that everyone is using.
This is my fabric pull - not exactly scrappy, but it's super bright and I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes together.
I have cut all my strips - the white fabric will be the centre diagonal of each block. Because I am using fabric strips rather than scraps, I decided to go for an 8 by 8 block rather than a 6 by 6 block - it is a more efficient use of fabric and also means that I only need to make 16 blocks to get a 64 by 64 inch throw size quilt.
This is a mock up of what my quilt might look like - it will be less organised because this is just one block duplicated over and over, whereas all my blocks will be slightly different. I can't wait to get started.
Have you also fallen victim to the scrappy trip along mania?
