WIP...Scrappy Trip Around the World

Jumped on board and loving it!!! 

Scrappy Trip Around the World  

I have admired all the pretty Scrappy Trips on blogs and on Pinterest.  
Here is the link for the Tutorial from Quiltville's Quips & Snips.

This fall I cleaned out and organized all my scraps and have been looking for a project to make with them.
Mine are truly scraps that I have had for years
 and just didn't fit in any other project.  
It's so exciting to see how the different blocks come together!  
Even the uglies look good in this quilt.  

Please excuse the threads. It has been so dark this past week, I had to grab and shot before the sun disappeared!
 I am only using scraps from my stash and trying to get the darkest color to run down the center of each block. 

To speed up the process a little I cut the strips 2 1/2 inches by the length of the scrap.  Most scraps are less than a fat quarter.  Then stitched them together and sub cut them.  I am left with 2 1/2 inch squares to use in another scrappy project. 

Happy Work in Progress Wednesday!

Link Parties:


  1. I think the dark fabric down the center might be the trick to making these look really good. Thanks for pointing it out. I haven't started one, but I was beginning to wonder why some of the work and some do not.

  2. I like yours and what a bonus using all scraps.
