Design Wall Monday 7/17/17

The last of the blue Scrappy Trips blocks were finished over the weekend, and they are now up on the design wall along with some red blocks. Oops, I see in the photo that one of the blue blocks is turned the wrong way--better get that fixed! As usual, my through-the-bathroom-doorway photo position has cut off some of the squares along the sides, but you get the idea.

Scrappy Trips Around the World
15" blocks made from 3" strips
pattern by Bonnie Hunter
Setting the blocks together 4 x 5 as shown will produce a quilt top that measures 60" x 75", the perfect size for a Quilt of Valor. I still have 10 more red blocks left, but haven't decided what to do with them. I'm thinking of combining them with a set of black and grey blocks for something a little different.

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Check out all of them for tons of amazing quilting inspiration!

  1. What a great colorway for Scrappy Trips! Glad you caught the mis-turned block before you had the top assembled. I think red and black/white (or black-to-gray-to-white) will look great, too.

  2. The setting you are using makes it look like the quilt is vibrating. Love this design and your color scheme. Great job!

  3. Lovely quilt in progress...I think the black and grey options sound great...

  4. Clever use of the Scrappy Trip blocks. I don't think I would have thought of using two different colors together. Good luck with getting the leftovers into another quilt.

  5. Someday I'm going to do a Scrappy Trips. This QOV looks wonderful.

  6. I really like the movement in this QOV. I even like the one block turned a different way-it adds interest. Great job.

  7. Very fun blocks. They will make a terrific QOV.

  8. Oh man - that turned out great - and I even like the turned block - its like he is saying "Look at this quilt!" Great job!!
