So...have you caught the bug? You know, #scrappytripalong, the one that's all over instagram and flickr? I know I just made a "resolution" of sorts to finish what I already have going, before starting anything new...but I simply couldn't resist. Before I knew it, I was tearing down the beginnings of a new Starburst Cross quilt using my Tula Pink Salt Water FQ bundle to make room for my very own Scrappy Trip Along.
To say that I am completely smittin' is an understatement. I am loving this to pieces. I have already claimed this quilt as my own, and it feels great to do some purely selfish sewing to start out the new year. I am planning on doing 30 blocks, to have a nice sized 60" x 72" couch snuggling quilt, and am even toying with the idea of using a fleece blanket as the backing, like Brooke did.
I now have 16 of the 30 blocks pieced, and just last night finished cutting strips for the last 14 blocks. This quilt is like a walk down memory lane of sorts. Its been fun to dig through my scrap bins and stash, and slice and dice until my hearts content. I had originally thought I might want to do something to give it some semblance of "order", but I've really enjoyed just pulling 6 strips that I like together for each block, and seeing how they come together.
What about you? Have you succumbed to the pull that is #scrappytripalong?? In case you need a little push, you can follow my regular updates @sewcraftyjess on Instagram, or pop over to the flickr group for more inspiration than your eyes can handle.
