A Couple Scrappy Trip Blocks


I've always heard that when you are overwhelmed by things that you have to do (or want to do) you should choose 3 to 5 things and put everything else out of sight and out of mind and just focus on those things that you have chosen.  In theory you should choose a long term project ( like hand quilting my Dear Jane), a medium project, and something you can complete quickly like a quilt binding.

Well, while I've been been working on getting focused and choosing those projects, I decided to make just a couple of the Scrappy Trip blocks that I've been seeing everywhere on the internet.

The block on the left is made from strips pulled from my scrap bag.  While sorting and organizing my Kaffe fabrics, I found these 2 1/2" strips used in the second block.  I think they could both be used in the same quilt.

 

I've been sewing once a week with a group of ladies at church that are making charity quilts, little girl's dresses, and pillowcases.  I made this pillowcase, and our cat Tiki decided to investigate.  He came to our door the week before Halloween wanting a friend and some food, and we took him in.  My daughter named him Mortimer since we brought him inside 2 days before Halloween, but he answers to Tiki.   You can find my hot dog pillowcase tutorial here.





I visited Daniel today.  He is such a happy guy, and I just love him to pieces.





Hope you are stitching today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
