The Scrappy Trip Quilt Is Finished!

10 July 2013

It feels like forever since I have completed a quilt.  I think I was on a small project binge for a while.  So beware, this post will be picture heavy!  I am loving this quilt and am actually using it as I write this post!

Normally when I make a quilt I am very precise and intentional about fabrics and color placement.  This time I wanted to stretch myself.  I didn't want to worry about color placement and I swore to myself that I would only use scraps!!!  This is actually the first quilt that I have completed entirely from my scraps.

For those of you who might not have heard of the scrappy trip along, it was a quilt along that started earlier this year and is based off of Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Quilt Tutorial.  There have been some amazing quilts that have been made and you can see some of those in the Scrappy Trip Along flickr thread.

So without further ado ..... here's my lovely!

I will be honest, it was really difficult for me not to plan anything with this quilt.  But I have to say that I am pleased with the final result!


Have I mentioned that I love how this turned out!




So there you have it!  I am not the kind of quilter that makes a quilt a second time, but I would love to make this quilt again.  I think it's because there are endless possibilities with color placement and the eventual design or pattern. I might have to give this another go!  And thanks to Bonnie Hunter for a spectacular pattern and tutorial!

  3. Gorgeous. I love all how colorful this quilt is and it is exciting to look around and recognize so many favorite fabrics. Great backing print. I bought 3 yards but wish I would have bought at least 12.

  7. Love this, it is beautiful! That backing is so neat. I know what you mean about wanting to make this one again. Every version I see is so different, it would be kind of like making a completely different quilt!
