I suppose you’ve all heard of the Scrappy Trip Along? No? Do a google image search. It’s everywhere.
Of course, my New Year’s Resolution was to start nothing new.
On New Year’s Day I did this:
which quickly turned into this (because you can’t just do one):
so now I have four blocks which won’t work size wise so I’ve decided to just keep going and maybe do a set of four in each of about nine colours, so that I have a square quilt when I’m done.
I can’t do the half scrappy thing. It has to be all scrappy or not at all scrappy, so I chose to make it very defined but scrappy, which is why I did the four block thing.
I used Bonnie’s method and man, is it easy and fun! I had no idea. I’ve got a method in my head brewing using a whole strip instead of just 16”, or using jelly rolls and I think you could make a very quick quilt that looks totally complicated with very little thinking at all.
So I’m very pleased with my blocks. But displeased with my self restraint, as I totally broke my world record in breaking New Year’s resolutions.
How about you? Have you done a trip around the world yet?
