A New WiP or A Trip Down the Rabbit Hole

I did it. I drank the kool aid. I just couldn't resist any longer.

scrappy trip blocks

That's right. I started a scrappy trip quilt! I kept telling myself I didn't have enough scraps or it would be too tedious and the blocks I did manage to make would end up languishing in a bin somewhere.. But you know what? I'm glad I gave it a shot. Because I am already in love :) What really pushed me over the edge was Couch's scrappy trip beginnings. Because she's a noob like me and since she just decided to go for it I thought, well why not? I can cut strips from fat quarters since I don't have many 2.5" scraps. I can make it work! So I am. Making it work. I couldn't be more pleased. Just 33 more blocks to go to get to the size I want! WOO! My goal is to finish this quilt before I start work, which gives me almost 4 weeks. I CAN DO THIS.

Back to work now! WEEEE!

Linking up to WiP Wednesday with Lee at Freshly Pieced!

  1. You have really great colours going on already! The finished thing will look fab, at whatever point you say 'ok, done!' :)

  2. Yay noobs! We rock! And we are fearless!

    Those forks and spoons are darling, I love them. And I just love the color progression in that top right square, it's pretty rad.

    Once I get more fabric in my stash, we should have a fabric swap or something, since we are so noobular and awesome.

  3. Don't worry about maybe not having enough of a fabric stash, the colors in the blocks work well and you'd never know it. Heck my fabric stash is so small I have only one grey! Anyway your quilt blocks are awesome and I especially love those Les Amis turtles.

  4. Your blocks look great so far. I was all reluctant to do one of these quilts too, and now I use mine every day. (I'm sitting under it right now.) It'll be totally worth it. 33 more! Go! :)
