Scappy Trip Along Quilt!

Hi friends! I've been busy working away on my scrappy trips quilt along since the beginning of the month. I wanted to jump into this project as I thought it would be a great way to start the year with a fun quilty project :) hopefully it will be the start of a productive year to come! I have lots of plans for the year, and one of my personal goals is to find some more time for quilt making and actual sewing! We all know it can be hard to squeeze in the time and motivation after a long day's work but I'm trying to be more organised with myself this year; less Pinterest, more doing perhaps ;)
p.s. this is my house!!
I'm completely in love with this quilt and I'm really pleased I jumped on the bandwagon to join in the fun. I would never have had the motivation to complete all 36 blocks if it wasn't in a quilt-a-long with hundreds of other quilters across the world! The Instagram buzz it created has been amazing! and I've spent far too long nosing round the #scrappytripalong photo's...
I cut into loads of my stash, and used up lots of scraps too! It's a real mix of lots of my favourite prints, no real plan of design layout - except I had to use a white print in each block, as I like my quilts with white!! :)
I hope you're all having an enjoyable start to the week! Jessie, xo
p.s. Don't forget I'm in the middle of having my BIG new year sale at Sew and Quilt, with fabric's up to 40% off until 31st Jan , a perfect excuse to stock up on scrappy trips fabric!! :)

  9. What an achievement! I hope to one day make a patchwork duvet cover but I need some support I think and a big dose of patience... but I'll use big squares!
