This Scrappy Trip by @jhallburns (quilted by @emileehathaway) really made me smile yesterday 😍 Beautiful work ladies!
You can find a tutorial on how to adapt the pattern to bigger blocks with a Jelly Roll on my blog.

Uff da, my knees! But getting up close and personal with this guy isn’t the worst way to spend a morning. .

I love these traditional patchwork quilts- the color opportunities are endless, and they come together so fast! Look for this guy in the shop by mid-next week 😘
First ever #scrappytripalong block 😄 I’m probably the last quilter to make@one of these ❤️ #sewmystash2017 #scrappy
Diagonal quilting my first Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt for a friend. #scrappytripalong #scrappytriparoundtheworld
Started and ended my day with some sewing! 🎉
Finished the quilting on my #scrappytripalong quilt before church and just put the finishing touches on the silent auction Christmas ornaments for @funnygirl_amanda. 🎄

Before I pack them away again, a closer look at my quilts which were on display over the weekend. The first is a scrappy Spiderweb (made 2011) via an online tutorial and is foundation pieced using Kaffe Fasset spotty fabric and random scrappy strips; the second (made 2011) is a machine-pieced Dresden plate which I dreamt up, using a special wedge-shaped ruler for cutting the fans, having always loved the traditional design; the last is an infamous "Scrappy Tripalong" (made 2013) which many bloggers made back in the day. It's an easy strip-pieced method for making what is a large quilt with many (1,296) 2" squares. I loved it and have made a Christmas version, too. ❤️ These will all have been featured in more depth on my blog if you would like more details. #patchwork #handmade #quilts #scrappytripalong #spiderweb #dresdenplate #henhousecrafty
And she's done!! Had fun with this #summertripwithme2017 #scrappytriparoundtheworld #scrappytripalong hosted by @myteaandbrie . Used #malkadubrawsky #simplemarks jelly rolls that I had plus some yardage I had accumulated when this line came out. I was very excited to find yardage from this line recently at @privatesourcequilting 's Etsy shop. Thank you Barb @barbbrandt3 for having me look there!
I couldn't stop at just one and made this version with larger blocks and white contrast. You can find instructions on how to do this with jelly rolls on my blog.
This quilt lives with my sister since she loves pink and navy. I have 5 younger sisters, and I really want them all to have a quilt from me. I just have one to go! She picked a pattern that I hate to make (it's my own 😂 Arabesque) so I've been putting it off, but next year is the year!
Also, this one got a bonus pillow since I lost a block, made an extra, and then found the first. ❤, @woodberry_way

Another pattern I really love to make is Scrappy Trip Around the World by @quiltville_bonnie. I made this red, white, and blue one about 4 years ago and it already has lots of happy memories associated with it since it's our designated outside quilt. We'll be taking it camping today! One day I hope we can buy a camper trailer and this will definitely live in there. It's a fun pattern if you haven't tried it yet! #scrappytripalong
I'm so busy these days I don't get time for sewing much any more. Here are my blocks so far made by my friends in #sassyquilters We are working on swapping Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks and my colors are peach or coral with a navy center. So beautiful! Here are 9 blocks. Hoping to finish with 30 for a lap quilt. #monthlymarker #scrappytripalong
Third is my #summertripwithme2017 quilt top; I have a flimsy! Still percolating on a backing choice...so most likely not a FAL official finish (as those things do take time!) but the top is complete 🎉 This one was a brain teaser for me and not always my favorite. I tend to dislike improv; don't get me wrong, I love where it leads others, but not me. I spend WAY too much time over thinking placement to call it improv. Truth be told, this project is not random. It is quite calculated, which my type A brain loves most 😉😂

This is made with a bundle from my shop, Jingle Holiday, and a few from my personal stash Christmas color pairings, like the green Gooseberry and the Little Ruby berries and bows.

And thanks to Meg @myteaandbrie for hosting the sewalong. Her instructs on her blog were clear and made this a fun quick project! #quiltweirdo #scrappytripalong #scrappy #scraptastic #jinglebirds #jingleholidaybundle #reddotgreendash #modafabrics #showmethemoda #quiltflimsy #quilttop #quilter #quiltsofinstagram
