Scrappy Trip!


Here she is, all 64 blocks and 96" square!  She's the largest quilt I've ever made.








These blocks are SO much fun to make.




Someone said they're like eating potato chips--addictive!




Since this quilt can include "everything," it's a great way to survey your stash.




I found that I have plenty of dotty fabrics, but I'm short on graphics.  




I'm also short on light lights and dark darks.  So now I've got reasons to shop!




There are plenty of bloopers and things I could change, 
but I'm happy with it and can't wait to get it quilted and on the bed!  

There's a Flickr group where you can see many more of these quilts here.

It looks absolutely fantastic! For me though, this is still in the "someday" category.

FANTASTIC!

Kathy said...

Love how this turned out. Loads of fun to look at both from the distance and up close. I've got squares sitting patiently for me to act on them.... but they are tiny. Haven't decided what I want to do with them This is a possibility.

Kim said...

Love that word scrapalicious..it about sums this quilt up: scrappy and yummy. Nicely done. I do love your color sense this is just so great looking.

Happy Sewing

Karen said...

It's amazing that a technique like that produces a quilt like this! I'm so happy for you.

Pam said...

yum! this quilt is delicious! I'd be surprised if you have any scraps left after this project. Love it!

Lisa said...

Yummy is right! It looks tremendous. I'm sure you can't wait to snuggle under it.

Zow! The scrappy trip along of my dreams!!!

Terry said...

Great Post thanks for all the close up shots. I've been cutting strips and as far as stash survey goes I'm missing the mid-range of colors. Very old lights/tiny flowers and dark Civil War. I was sure I had more brights even if they wern't graphics but ??[read maybe yes maybe no].
Your quilt is perfect for snuggeling under with a book.

Sharon said...

Really Beautiful. I love your colors!

Rachaeldaisy said...

Yay!!! I love it!!! So big and colourful and full of fun fabrics. I'v got some of the same fabrics in my Scrappy Trip, I think that makes us twins :)

JaneB said...

Oh that is wonderful! I think I spotted several fabrics that I have in my stash. I am trying to resist this quilt until I get two others finished, then I'm diving in. I love your setting and colors.

Marit said...

Congratulations! Just love it! I would say this very much qualifies as a nifty quilt, it is so big and has so many different fabrics. Your center red diamond is also a very nice touch!
; )

Victoria Findlay Wolfe said...

FAN-TAB-U-LOUS! wahoo! here'sto BIG quilts!

Chris said...

LOVE! I think it's the absence of lights and darks - plus your great stash filled with lots of warm colors and great busy prints - that makes this quilt so great!

YankeeQuilter said...

Woohoo...love it! I made two of these several years ago. One is only list for binding this month...thanks for the reminder. (love your fabrics!)

Helen said...

You managed to outdo yourself....not an easy thing to do! Bravissimo!!!
