Almost finished on Design Wall Monday

This weekend included some quality sewing time and I finished all 36 of my Scrappy Trip blocks!


Now I still have to sew them all together but I know that will be fun because as I assemble this top I'll get to look at some of my favorite novelty prints like this adorable sock monkey...


and this polka dot pony...



and this cool sewing machine - I love that lime green color...


and this cute cat...


and one of my favorite Richard Scarry characters - Mr. Pig chasing his hat...


and driving in his pickle car...


I can't wait to get this one to the quilter. Hope your week has some sewing time too!

Happy stitching-
carol fun

It looks great!

Oh my goodness, Carol, this is delightful. I am quite smitten with it. The novelty prints all play so well together. Gotta say I love the pickle car. LOL

Louisa said...

Wonderful! I love the way you've planned the placement and still kept it really scrappy.

I love the way you included some fussy cut novelty prints in the quilt. Those always make quilts so much fun.

You have been sewing up a storm - its gorgeous. I love how all of those colors just scream 'party' and then as you look closer at the individual fabrics, you get to walk down memory lane. Such fun fabrics!

What a delightful quilt. I loved the bright colors from a distance and then when you showed the close-ups it was even more fun.

Great setting! Those are really fun prints. Lime green sewing machines rock :)

I love it!! Just gorgeous, and I like how the squares are scrappy, vs. carefully planned out. Scrappy is wonderful!

I'm about 20 blocks behind you! Took it to the sew in this past Saturday and 5 or 6 people are starting their own this week. Love those Richard Scarry prints!

Scrappy trip while I spying-such fun. I have a friend who is doing this scrappy pattern too. I sent your site to her so she can see yours.

Michelle said...

That's beautiful! I love all of the yellows, and the fun prints hiding in the squares.

Melinda said...

I am still working on my batik one. I love yours and I would like to make one like it after I finish the batik one.

Chris said...

I love this trip! Tell me how you made your strip blocks so the design came out that way. Very nice!

That Richard Scary takes me back to when my son,who turns 40 next month, was a little boy!

Manuela said...

Beautiful blocks.

Greetings, Manuela

Cathy said...

Oh what fun!

Marsha said...

I love it. How I miss looking at Richard Scary books. In fact, I found one last week in the basement the Lowly Worm sniffy book. The cover was missing and all the scratch and sniff parts were all worn off. Sigh, good memories.
