Scrappy Trip Along

1st quilt along for the year started today! Good job I never made any resolutions this year, like finishing wip's before starting a new project!! hee, hee

This is a very fast one, Katy of I'm A Ginger Monkey made her top in 3 days! But then she is a machine, a very inspirational machine, and super lovely to boot!

So, you can read all about the construction of the block here at Quiltville. See fabulous pics in the quiltalong flickr group here, you could also follow along with Twitter at #scrappytripalong.



Here are my strips, I'm starting off with 9 blocks. It might go to 16 though as I'm not sure if I'll be happy with overall pattern with just 9.


my 1st block


2nd


3rd


and 4th

All made this afternoon.
See I told you they were quick.
All you need to start are (6) 2.5 x 16 " strips.



Don't they look fab! I'm using all scraps for these 1st 9 blocks, ooooh idea, I wonder what a border of black and white blocks around the 9 scrappy blocks would look like? I wonder how many black and white prints I have? 

Anywho, that's what I'm up to, how about you? What craft project have you got on the go?

Cheerio for now,
x Mandy
