Working on Scrappy Trips Again

In the background, I have been working on the scrappy trips blocks.  I got all 64 of them sewn into two block units and am starting to sew them into four block units.  Once I get that done, I will play with the placement a little and hopefully get it all sewn together soon.  I don’t think it needs a border but it will be easier to quilt if I have something around the outside.  It is be 96 inches with just the blocks.

Here are the stack of blocks sewn into two block units.

Here are the first two four-block units.

I am really liking how it is turning out. 

It has been too cold to work on the longarm but it should be a lot better today with a high in the 40’s so hopefully I can get down there and work on some customer quilts so that I have time to work on the NYD quilt.  I am excited about quilting it but have to finish up some customer quilts first.

I taught the first classes of beginning machine quilting yesterday but forgot to take photos of their fabrics.  Oh well, next week I will get it done and share all the delightful quilts in progress.

  1. I just basted my scrappy trips quilt yesterday! Will start quilting on it maybe today..... Although, mine is 7x7 instead of 8x8 like yours. If I had a longarm, I would have made it bigger though, but I try to keep mine under 90x90 so I can quilt it on my sewing machine :) That, and have only 2 widths of backing instead of 3 :)


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
