Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

After seeing so many fun versions of the Scrappy Trip Around the World pattern, I decided I wanted to make one.  I'm excited about trying to make it completely out of my stash!  I don't know how many blocks that will be, but I'm going to keep going until I run out of 2.5 by 16 inch strips!  A question I have for anyone out there - is there a way to determine which fabric will come out in the center of your finished block when you are initially laying out the strips?

I have only made 2 blocks so far, but one thing I love about this pattern is taking any 6 pieces of fabric out of my stash and being able to make a block in an hour.  It will be fun to see how the quilt develops as I add more blocks.  I think I need more fun, bright colors, or maybe larger scale prints.  What do you think?

I just love seeing all the scrappy trip-along quilts. I actually CREATED one when I made mine from a jelly roll so now I want to make another--with scraps this time. Yours is very cool!
