I am having a lot of fun with these Scrappy Trip blocks. I have 8 finished and my plan is to do 36 total... so there are 26 to go.
So far every strip is unique. I would have no trouble making every colored strip one of a kind in this quilt. I'm not sure about the black/white I'm using in the center. I love going through my novelties and brights slicing off a 2 1/2" strip.
So far I have monkeys on trapezes...
chickens from the 60's....
and even Charlie Brown and Snoopy among the blocks.
I plan on adding lots more of these kinds of prints. And even if I do make this quilt totally unique... a total of 216 strips it will hardly make a dent in my stash. But it does make my heart happy to know this is going to be a totally FREE quilt. Do not point out the total fallacy of my logic since I know I paid for every single piece of fabric in my stash... but if I can't remember what I paid for it (and I am getting older and fuzzy of memory) it must be FREE fabric.
Okay, I'm off to indulge in more fabric slicing and wandering around in my stash.
