Scrappy Trip Along

Unless you were hid under a rock in the New Year you cannot possibly have missed the sewing storm that was an overnight instant IG hit, the Scrappy Trip Along.

Brenda and Katy basically caused a furore with this quiltalong and there were literally hundreds of quilts been stitched up - amazing!

In my usual style I had to join in but then I took ages to finish, you know like I needed another big project when my sewing time is so sparse just now.

Anyhow it's finished.....

Happy on Holly's bed!

To be honest its been finished a while but Holly pinched it the minute I brought it back from the lovely Trudi who has quilted it for me and it's been on her bed ever since - minus the binding.

So seen as we had a little sun at the weekend I thought I'd get some decent shots of this lovely quilt: 

The pictures were taken at a place called 'The Watershed' which is a mill that's been turned into a creative space by Shabang Theatre Company. Holly does a lot of drama/creative work there as Shabang specialise in working with children with additional needs. 

Here's the quilt fitting in lovely on one of the show sets:

Perfect right?

Now all I need to do is bind the beast!!


  1. Gorgeous and perfect backing choice.

  2. Its lovely! I always find the binding both the worst and the best bit! x

    1. The binding is my best bit I'm just crap at time management just now!!

  3. It is very lovely.
    Definitely one of my favourite Scrappy Trip quilts ever.
