wendysquiltsandmore Don't these blocks look great together? Sadly I didn't win the block of the month at #capitalquilters today. @adrianneonthewindyside comes up with the ideas each month, and everyone who makes one goes into the draw to win them all. I might have have to make my own version of this one day. #capitalquiltersblockofthemonth #capitalquiltersbom 3h

leeannjperry Just got this back from my lady in town who free motioned this with little flowers. It's so hard to photograph these colors accurately. They are vibrant but the sun is trying to wash them away. #konacotton #scrappytripalong 10h

debra.lou Having so much fun making this quilt! But why is it when you make a scrap busting quilt the fabric pile does not disappear?!! 😎😀 #SAMQG #scrappyquilt #scrappytripalong 19h

leeannjperry A variation of #scrappytripalong or #triparoundtheworldquilt. These are 4 of 16 diamonds to make a queen/king size. #quilt #addicted #konacotton 1d

dizzy_chizzy I'm pleased to say that the #scrappytriparoundtheworld quilt made it from Moncton to its new home on Skeleton Lake in #muskoka where it will hopefully keep family and friends warm for years to come #cottagelife #scrappytripalong #scrappyquilt #modernquilt 1d

  •   farahlin_ Thanks so much @niniquilts and @bind_quilts - sorry but I can't remember but it's definitely not from the two designers you've mentioned...I got it abt 3 years ago and failed to make note of the designer nor manufacturer!!! 😐 I got some remnant but the label was already cut off during it's basting stage thus I have no recollection what line it's from. 1d
  •   three_owls Moving right along! 1d
  •   niniquilts I'm the same @farahlin I don't even know what my all time favourite fabric is called 23h

farahlin_ Remember the #scrappytripalong quilt top I shared sometime last year!?! I finally got it quilted!!! I wanted a stippling design on this and since I have no experience in fmq, I sent it to my LQS about a month ago to get it done! This came home with me this afternoon and I'm so pleased with the end result... binding next! 3d

katejacksontextiles Middle layer of the #scrappytripalong #libertylawn blue quilt is silk. I use two layers of pure silk, because one isn't quite enough. When you're working with Liberty- only the best will do. Also - its like quilting into cloud! Lots of smoothing and pinning in my immediate future 4d
  •   bearsville50 Wow. Impressive! 😀 4d
  •   kay_haydon I would love to try the silk, where can I purchase it please 4d
  •   katejacksontextiles @kay_haydon there is a website called silk route - and I first met them at the Festival of Quilts two years ago - I buy it mail order now because I have never worked with anything so beautiful- it's a bit thin for a big quilt like this, so I use two layers - fine for cot quilts to use just one, but that extra over a huge piece is worth doing I think 4d
  •   katejacksontextiles @kay_haydon -tell them I sent you!! 4d
  •   kay_haydon Thank you, will let you know how I get on 4d
  •   llordshea Think I need to try this, too! 3d
  •   katejacksontextiles @llordshea it is very lovely to work with, has a fabulous drape and is light as a feather. 3d

katejacksontextiles I have acres of this Hera #libertylawn for the back of the #scrappytripalong blue quilt. It is so lovely - a real treat to work with such sumptuous fabric. #handquilting 4d
  •   kay_haydon Lucky you! Liberty or voile is definitely the way to go for hand quilting. 4d
  •   dittanym Great choice! 4d

shutterbugmal #scrappytripalong day two. Had a hellacious day at work. Found solace in sewing. Life is slightly better now. Yay, pretty fabrics! #bonnieandcamille 4d
  •   marquitta_quilts This is possibly my favorite quilt ever. 4d
  •   sew_joselyn I love this! Did you use a jelly roll to make this beauty 4d
  •   shutterbugmal @sew_joselyn i used two! With @kelbysews minimal waste technique, it should end up being about 64" x 80" 4d
  •   haileyindallas How long are you cutting your strips then since this is different from the original? I really like this and have 2 jelly rolls ready to go! 4d
  •   shutterbugmal @haileyindallas I'm cutting the jelly roll strips in half (2.5 x 22). I piece 8 of them together, attaching all of the pieces down the long side to make a tube. Then, I cut the tube into 2.5 inch segments (8 total). The blocks come out at 16.5 inches square, and the tube is left with about an inch on each end leftover. 4d
  •   shutterbugmal Hope that helps, @haileyindallas 4d
  •   haileyindallas That helps a ton @shutterbugmal! Before this convo I was going to either have to get a 3rd roll or have a small quilt with a bunch of spare. I really appreciate your time 3d
  •   colourmehappy2 This is gorgeous! 3d

katejacksontextiles On my way home from my brother's I called by #standfastbarrack (I hope that's a tag) to get the #libertylawn for the back of my blue Liberty #scrappytripalong - what absolutely lovely staff! This is manager Mark who pinned my quilt top up for everyone to see while I chose more fabric. What a great place - it's a factory shop on the edge of Lancaster. One of my favourite places #happy #monday #ineedahaircut 5d

shutterbugmal Progress thus far. I'm apparently at the point of drink where my hubby is yelling, "you better not play with the rotary cutter!" Silly hubby--I have much experience with the rotary cutter after drinks. #scrappytripalong #bonnieandcamille 5d
