Scrappy Little Trips Around the World

I've been working on Lozenges and Spools and hoping to find that ruler sometime soon so I can start cutting Tumblers. As soon as saw the fabric from the Craigslist ad on Wednesday morning, I started to think of which of my scrappy UFOs I could start cutting pieces for. 

Scrappy Little Trips was at the top of my list, since there are fabrics in my newly enhanced stash that I know aren't in here already. I've almost given up the idea of trying to make it without any repeats, but it's still tempting. I've got the  fabric... it's whether or not I have the patience. 


(The idea for this one isn't my own -- I saw the 6" Scrappy Trips blocks that Karin at Cascade Quilts had made and fell in love.)

Jo is starting a new “finish a UFO before Bonnie Hunter has her new mystery out” linky party tomorrow. I've got so many irons on the fire right now that I  doubt I'll get one of my quilts finished, but I can definitely make some progress!

So colorful! Looks very time consuming also.

Looks great! I have a Scrappy Trips that I have been working on with no repeats too. 13 blocks done!
Maybe I'll get it out and see if I can get it finished.

I have the same problem... too many irons in the fire!

Your "Trips" are trippin"! I think you'll help them travel to a finish with Jo's challenge. Thanks for reminding me about another Bonnie project I wanted to do: I have two trips blocks made up from a scrap stash that started out to be used for her Scrappy Bargello. Alas it won't be the focus for this challenge but hopefully some other finishes will allow me to get back to them.

Is that one hard to make? I don't have a design wall (no room), so I have hesitated to try it. Yours is beautiful.

You display the most beautiful quilts. I have a couple of old quilts made my grandmother's sister. I cherish them. There is a new vintage link party Vintage Charm starting up this coming week on Thursday October 15th at 8:00 AM and I would love for you to join at http://www.bluewillowhouse.com and share some of your quilts. Your links will be seen on four blogs. Hope to see you there.
