Halfway

 Last Tuesday afternoon  I decided I wanted join in on the scrappy trip around the world   so I went through my cupboard to choose fabrics and as I don't have that many scraps I opened 3 jelly rolls that have been in the cupboard for ages, this saved alot of cutting to. I'm so pleased with how its looking so far, the blocks were tricky to start with but once I did 2 I got the hang of it.
 I think I'll make 36 blocks in total, that  means I'm halfway already and its only Saturday. I have made 18 blocks this week and if I work really hard I hope to get a few more done today.
 I  like how its looking so far.  Colour placement is the key to a good block.
I also finished the middle row for Sweetheart houses quilt for work, I'm on block 7 now and its looking good.

Ok back to my sewing, have a great day and I hope you find some sewing time today to.

Looks like we are all falling for that Scrappy Trip block! I did one last night and am a big fat liar because I was NOT going to start another quilt. Yours is beautiful! I love your colors! I don't have even one roll of strips! I love the other quilt too. It is amazing. I just love the colors you choose. You have a real talent!

Cheery wave from the big, fat liar!

I love the scrappy quilt. I think I will have to do one. They are everywhere and I love every single one. I like the idea of using up some jelly rolls. That would save heaps of time...
Happy Quilting L xo

Your Scrappy Trip is gorgeous! I really like the overall softer colour. It has been quite a craze! Sweetheart Houses looks quite involved but very pretty. Love your work!
