Scrappy Trip Progress ~ 9 Blocks Finished

I was able to make more scrappy trip blocks this weekend. I really love seeing this quilt come together. I have to repeat some of the lighter prints because I'm running low on them. I've decided that this will be the baby's quilt. I was going to use my stash of Bliss, Ruby, and Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for her quilt. Then I started making these and thought they would be perfect for a little girl. So far I'm thinking of a 4x4 layout (16 blocks) so all of the aqua diamonds are complete. I plan to keep working on it and get it finished before the baby is born. Only a few weeks to go :)

These are my two favorite blocks right now. I didn't use the strip technique for these 2 blocks because the fabric was already cut into 2.5" squares. So I pieced them. I've said over and over again through the years on this blog that this is my absolute favorite fabric. It's Sweet by Urban Chicks for Moda. I only have scraps left. I use them very sparingly. I will be sad when it's all gone.

They look just great!! I made a practice set, too, to try the technique and was so pleased. Mine is small, but beautiful!! It's scrappy, but all greens. If I didn't have so many projects lined up at the machine, I'd keep going!! ~karen
