Scrappy Trips All-Nighter in Polokwane, South Africa!

I have been in contact with Linda who had organized a Sew-In with her local quilt shop using my Scrappy Trips pattern!

I awoke yesterday to photos from this wonderful group of ladies, and I am so excited to see what fun they had, ALL NIGHT LONG!

 Dear Bonnie

As per your request, here are some of the photo’s of our all night workshop using your Scrappy Trip Along pattern. 
We gathered at our local quilt shop at 18:00 (6pm) on Friday night the 5th of April.  In total, there were twelve of us who worked straight through the night until 06:00 the following morning. 
It was very educational and everyone really enjoyed themselves.  We were provided with a meal in the quilt shop so as not to waste any time.  The quilt shop owner (Ann Nel) and her assistants were very gracious hosts and made the evening really enjoyable.
Everyone made good progress and all in all I would say that the evening was a big success.
Thanks again for everything you do for quilters world wide and for allowing us to use your pattern. We appreciate it.

Linda, thanks for sharing the photos of your quilting party! You did "Quilt til you Wilt!"


  1. I'm still working on mine too :-)
    (do you know that in feedly your site shows up with NO pictures!? odd, I see other pictures and I can't remember if I've seen your pics on there before- I'm new to reading in feedly)

  2. Great inspiration! for using up those 2.5" strips. Quilt On Ladies.

  3. Fantastic looking quilt shop. Will have to take a day trip there one day to see. Thanks for sharing quilting info from down here in South Africa - at least I don't feel so VERY cut off tnow.
    Regards from Sharon in Sunny South Africa too.

  4. Do you have any tips for sewing the blocks together? It seems that most of mine end up not opposing each other. Love this block and love how you have inspired so many quilters. Thanks Evelyn
