Scrappy trips

I have been wanting to do a Scrappy Trips quilt a la Bonnie Hunter for quite some time. (pattern here) I’ve been working on taming my scraps, and I’ve had a colour combination brewing for a while. Today I finally got some scrap 2 1/2″ strips pulled. I have no idea how many strips I will need, but I’m not worried about running out, that’s for sure. I really like the first block, but I’m not so keen on the second. It seems a bit too ‘white’, if you will.

I will most likely just leave it, cause the thought of picking it out does not thrill me. I’m concerned it will stick out like a sore thumb, but I think I’ll just have to check my perfectionist tendencies at the door and let it be. In fact, that’s exactly what I’m going to do!!

  2. Came here from the CT “Scrap Bags” group. I too want to do a “Trips” quilt. I had saved scrap strips to do Bonnie’s “Scrappy Bargello” until I realized that I didn’t know what size I wanted it to be and it would be easier to adjust the size of a “Trips” quilt since it’s made in blocks instead of columns. I look forward to starting it one day but will also look forward to following your progress until I do! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks great! I wouldn’t worry about the one block looking too white. If you do the same with several other blocks, then it will all look naturally scrappy! I have made several scrappy trip around the world of bonnie’s, even taught a class on it. Every quilt turned out beautiful!
