I wrote the quick piecing directions for Scrappy Trips in 1999 when I taught it for a charity quilt class for my guild.
I posted the directions to the website so everyone could print their own copy, and the rest is history!
I don’t know how many Scrappy Trips quilts have been made, but with the popularity of the Scrappy Trip-Along on Flickr and Instagram ----and thanks to Pinterest, Scrappy Trips quilts are popping up all over the place and it is so exciting to watch!
For instance, I just typed in “Scrappy Trip Along” into my browser search bar and it came up with these images HERE.
But there is one group who has approached Scrappy Trips in such a wonderful manner I have to stop and share it with you!
Alycia over at Alyciaquilts.blogspot.com has been hosting a Scrappy Trips Block Drive for Quilts of Valor. They started in November, and have had many blocks sent in – and tops are coming together!
For more photos, and information on how to participate in such a worthy cause, contact Aylica by email HERE.
Thanks for the great job you do, ladies! This is such an on-going worthy cause and I’m happy to play a very small part in making this design available ---14 years later, still going strong!
