Happy Scrappy Trips on Design Wall Monday

Yesterday gave me some quality sewing time and I finished 4 more blocks on my Happy Scrappy Trips 2.0 version.  I am having such fun with this block. Thank you Bonnie Hunter!


More dots and plaids and brights - lots more - LOL!



Big dots and little dots...


Wavy lines and scribbles...


Plaids and dots with more dots...

This quilt should finish at about 80 inches square, and will look great on my bed. In this version I am making the block 8 X 8 and the squares finish 2 1/2".

 On Friday I showed two friends how to put together this Scrappy Trips block and the fabrics they are using are tempting me to do a third and fourth version - oh no!!!! One was using yummy batiks and the other had Kaffe Fassett fabrics - I don't think I can resist. I have plenty of these fabrics in my stash to do both versions. I just need more time to sew!

Happy stitching-
carol fun

  11. Aren't those the most fun to make?! I love how each block has it's own feel, yet they all play together so well. Add in your favorite fabrics and you've got a recipe for a favorite quilt! Your colors are so yummy...makes me want to find a carnival and act like a kid again. I say, yes to making another...in fact, I may have to join you.
