Scrappy Quilting

I like to read other people's blogs but unfortunately I don't always get the chance and time to do that. One blogger that keeps my blog roll moving is im a ginger monkey . 
There is always something going on there. One day, looking for inspiration, I fell upon her tutorials page and found the famous "Scrap Vomit" quilt which led me to looking up her Scrappy Trip Along photos on Flickr . 

The light bulb went on. Get rid of scraps. I need to do that. 
I've been cutting and sewing for weeks and weeks and have made the biggest quilt ever! 
I think I could go on for ever. I can't believe how much yucky fabric I have and how many scraps I have accumulated. 
I have bought no new material and am holding back until I make some inroads to my stash.

I have even more blocks made. 49 in all and about 16" square each. Enough for a king bed.
It has been so much fun playing with the blocks.
Every time I lay down the blocks I have found another way to make a pattern.
Once I decide on the final lay out I will put it together.
Meanwhile... I am trying to make a few gifts for end of year thank you's.
These dogs are for my co year level teacher.
She is mad about dogs.

Anyway, if you are looking for an idea to dig into your stash, follow the link to the Flickr photos and you might become as addicted to making these scrappy blocks as I have been lately.


  1. I love your scrappy trip along and it is indeed scrappy.. Is your scrap basket now completely empty? Isn't it funny how the most "yucky" fabric (as you called it) disappears completely in a project like this? Cute dog pot holders. Your colleague will be very pleased.

  2. Your Scrappy Trips looks wonderful!! Love those fun dogs too.

  3. Oh my gosh! That scrappy quilt is great! You are so prolific!

    Those dog mats are adorable! You know I am mad for dogs… in fact, I'm getting a new dog Dec. 1!!! Lucky me!

  4. It sounds like the perfect therapy for your scraps. I've seen several beautiful quilts done with this pattern and know that some day it will be on my list too. So glad that you are having fun with it!
