Scrappy Trip Along


Well, I have officially finished my largest quilt top to date.  


I made and pieced together 30 12" blocks - which might be small for most of you but it seems huge to me!  The blocks were fun to make and I could have happily kept on going but I stopped here thinking ahead to the actual quilting part.


I also used this opportunity to try to figure out some new places inside my house to take quilt pics since this top was too big to fit on the white brick wall in my sewing space that I usually use.  The photo above is on my couch in front of a large window that faces west.


This is the floor in front of the couch.  


The chair on the other side of the room.


And finally on my bed.  

Well, the photo taking is still a work in progress but I'm having fun experimenting with the possibilities!

  1. This is truly the prettiest version of this quilt I've seen! It is just stunning. The fabrics you picked look amazing together. It reminds me of a Sarah Fielke quilt.

  7. Looking fabulous Beth, and i mostly make little quilts too, so that would be massive for me, i understand what you mean about the quilting- pretty daunting, but i am sure you'll do a great job, maybe pay one of the kids to hold it up for you whilst you quilt!! ; )

  10. So pretty Beth - the largest quilt I've ever done is lap-size and the thought of quilting anything bigger than that on my little machine scares me just a bit!!!!! Sx

  11. Now you've just about convinced me to start one myself :) I love the pops of the darker values throughout the quilt. And I particularly like the shot on that beautiful charcoal chair!

  12. It looks great! I have loved seeing these quilts pop up all over and have been fighting the urge to make one myself. Maybe I will, every time I see one I think about it more and more.

  13. It is absolutely beautiful Beth. You did a great job on this quilt top. I like the shot of the quilt on the chair, the lighting is perfect. I also like the shot of the quilt on your bed... the lighting is softer but still shows the colors very well. I'm looking forward to seeing the quilting you do for this one.

  17. Wow it is just gorgeous! I really want to give this quilt a go some time, it looks like so much fun and it's so impressive too. Your photos are lovely too :-)

  18. Very nice. Did you sew single squares together or use the strips technique? I am collecting both to make a scrappy like this. How do you intend to top quilt it..FMQ--wise?

  20. Beth, I love this! It's beautiful! And I agree, 30 12" blocks is huge for me too.

  22. Lovely Beth! How will you be quilting this one?

  23. It is so pretty! The colors are very calming and pleasing to the eye and I like the value range. I love all the pictures! I can't get enough quilty poses :D. The size feels huge to me too...I do almost exclusively lap-to-twin size quilts, but they still always feel unwieldy to me!

  26. It turned out great. I have to find a good inside photo spot too. It has been way too cold to go out and my typical spot has been buried in snow and/or mud.

  27. So pretty. I'm slowly getting sucked into the Scrappy Trip madness. I'd rather move some big quilts than bins of fabric, so I guess I should get started.
