Happy Scrappy Trips


I know, I know, you've seen plenty of these out here in Blogland.   
But these blocks are SO much fun to make with this tutorial from Bonnie Hunter!





I'm going to make about twice this many blocks, and I'm playing around with layout.





I've been making the blocks in batches of four.  A batch takes less than two hours.  





This actually eats up stash!





Next one:  RED!

It doesn't matter how many you see, they are all colorful and exciting. Yours is going to be so lovely when you get all those pieces together.

Your scrappy version is delightful. I love those red checks and prints, but then I love reds. Your next one should be the ultimate red quilt!

Oh, the reds! The reds!! I'm a little weak in the knees with luv.

Your Bonnie Hunter scrappy is just so happy! This pattern has been on my to-do list forever; isn't it a great one for just playing with colors.

Yummy! I've been dwaddling around the last few day and this looks like a terrific day brightening project. Looking forward to those signature Nifty red blocks.

Karen said...

I'm trying so hard to resist - but yours are adorable. So cute!

Carla said...

Your rendition is extra cute...looks just like you...I guess that's because you are using your awesome stash and wonderful colors!

audrey said...

I've really enjoyed looking at all the various renditions of this quilt. Love your colors and fabric used! Wonderful effort!

Just beautiful.

Sharon said...

I am really loving the different setting! Can't wait to see...

Sharon said...

Aren't these blocks fun to make? It's like eating potato chips - hard to stop! I've made 3 now, and I don't think they're out of my system yet. They look so different with different themes or colors or settings. It's fun to see you play on your design wall!

I love your colors - they're very You, of course. Hmmm, I don't see any purple either? *grin*

And a red version would be a humdinger!

Cathy said...

I have been so tempted by these quilts, and yours is amazing as anything made by you always is, I love it Nifty! xo

Nat Palaskas said...

I love this block and I'm happy to say I made 24 blocks so far in vintage Japanese indigo fabric with silk and cotton. I only picked it up again last night. I really like to make with scrap happy like yours. Thanks for your inspirations - Hugs Nat

Planning to sort through the strip stash today -- some of those 'oldies but goodies' would be marvelous in this format (AND they would vacate the shelf!).

LOVE the colors in your version.

Sooooooo tempting to join the band wagon. BEAUTIFUL! Did you do intentional placement of fabric (darkest) for the center strip in each block? Thanks for sharing! Janita
