Scrappytripalong is FINISHED!!! :D

Oh baby, stick a fork in it, IT'S DONE!!  ....all 96" x 108" of it....SEVENTY-TWO 12" blocks, ALL 2,592 TWO inch squares!!!

 The Saturday after Christmas, an impromptu quilt along blew up all over Instagram.  I watched for two days, and then I just couldn't stand it anymore :)  You can read more about my scrappy-trip HERE.


I started to make this beast on New Year's Eve and I finally finished it yesterday :)

This quilt is for MY bed :)

The fabric I used for this ALL came from my stash.  Most of it is old scraps from projects years ago.

I decided to make sure that there was a black row in the middle of each block.  It made me feel more comfortable with all of the wild scrappiness ;D

For the back and the binding I did have to buy new fabric.  I hit the clearance rack at Gracie Lou's.  These are three fabrics that I have been eyeing for a while now.  They have the PERFECT amount of funkiness for this scrappy monster!

For the binding, I found this black and white text print from the GREASE fabric line ...also on the clearance wall ;)

Now I just need to come up with Euro pillow shams to match.... hmmm, what ever shall I do?


  1. It's beautiful! I love that you added the black row. I've only sewn one block so far. I'll's hard for me to do scrappy. Maybe a common color in all of the blocks would help. Great idea!

  2. The quilt is wonderful and so well done. I love the touch of black. I bet you will truly enjoy having it on your bed.

  3. That is just a LOT of scraps! Love it, love it, love it! Great job!

  4. It is gorgeous. I can't believe how fast you got it done.

  5. Very very beautiful! I love your choice of the black diagonal lines. Just perfect to direct your eyes.

  7. You are crazy! (In a good way.) I just can't believe all you manage to get done. Neat idea to use the text print on the binding!

  8. Well it's ABOUT TIME you finished it! (You can see my eyes rolling in amazement at your ultra speedy-ness, even amidst sickness and, oh ya, a daughter getting married!) It's awesome! Congrats on a quilt for YOUR bed! Woohoo!

  9. Wow. Impressive that you made it so large. Looks great!

  10. Absolutely gorgeous! I love it with the black centers!

  11. One word: FANTASTIC, just like you! I love the way it came out, love the orange peels and love your photos! Well done Girlfriend!!!
