Trying to keep up with the quilting world while I was on holidays, I noticed beautiful scrappy ‘trip around the world’ blocks appearing everywhere. I am a real sucker for scrappy quilts and I have been drawn in by their intoxicating fumes of random colour and designs – Colourific chaos! I think we have Lucy and Norman to thank for this viral quilt a long.
There is a great tutorial at Quiltville.
Using Splendour 1920 by Bari J for Art Gallery Fabrics and Pure Elements, I will build 24″ blocks with rows of plain, HST,QST and drunkard path blocks. Each unit will be 4″ finished. Quilt size will be 98″ x 98″.
I am itching to start this project but alas, I have 2 more to finish this month so it will have to wait.
In the meantime, grab all your scraps and make one. Also, search the ever growing gallery of photos at the Flickr group or search #scrappytripalong on Instagram for inspiration.
