Scrappy Trip Quilt

I’ve been attacking my UFO drawer in a serious way lately.

I’m determined to follow through and finish all partially started Quilts before I start any new ones!  I’ve made a lot of progress, going to make a guess I’m over half done!  

I’ve realized that for my quilting to be enjoyable for me in this busy and chaotic stage of life, I need a lot LESS.  Less projects on the go, less fabric (I’ve bought almost no quilting fabric for a year!) and just a simpler clutter free sewing space.

These blocks were in my unfinished drawer.  I downsized the scrappy trip patter to 2” strips instead of 2.5”, and 5 strips instead of 7.  I really like this mini version, but I think I put them away because they weren’t big enough to make a quilt.

Now I added low volume squares around the outer edges to make it larger, and we’ve got a baby quilt!


  1. How interesting as I am working on my very first Trip-Around-the-World Quilt.

  2. That is so cute! I love red and blue right now.

  3. I too have been trying to use up my scraps. I find your quilts an inspiration.

  4. Beautiful! The colours were the perfect addition!

  5. I love this. I looked up the around the world quilt and I'm not too keen on it but I really like what you've done here. 😁
