How many Scrappy Trips blocks can you make in a 3 hour workshop?
And they are so fun you just can’t stop! The proverbial potato chip, you can’t make just one ---and because EVERYTHING goes, you’ll find yourself wanting to play with more and more and more combinations, sewing up the fabrics and having a great time doing it.
If you haven’t made one, you need to! If you have made one, but haven’t done another in a while –choose a different strip width and experiment!
You will find the free pattern for Scrappy Trips under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
Two quilts, two different strip widths!
The small quilt with the red border has 16 blocks that were all gifted to me by many different quilters –the blocks play beautifully together because they are EVERYTHING!
The quilt with the green border was made using a bunch of 2’’ strips instead of 2 1/2’’ as given in the original pattern –because I HAD those strips to use. I like the 9’’ block size! The 2 1/2’’ strips will give you a 12’’ block size.
Like them smaller? Go with 1 1/2’’ strips and see how fun a Scrappy Trips quilt can be!
Press them out, girls!
Yep! they are having a strippy good time!
Daughter, Mother, Sister!

See!! EVERYTHING goes!

Thank you for a wonderful retreat, ladies!
And special thanks to this talented lady!
For years and years Margie has been in charge of making all of the name badges for all of the retreaters – just this retreat alone there were 112 name badges to be made!
Laure has her whole collection for the many times she’s attended!
MY Name badge for this year’s retreat!
Next year’s Spring Retreat is nearly full with a waiting list, and the badge making will start again. I can’t wait to see what they will come up with for the theme, and design for the badges!
Again, thank you for including me and making me feel so welcome during my time here in Washington.
This morning Mary is picking me up to get me to the airport – we’ll stop for breakfast on our way and I’ll be off toward North Carolina, and in my own bed tonight.
Love from a drizzly wet Pacific Northwest!
