Scrappy Trip-Along

Just a tiny scrappy trip-along update today. I finished cutting out 1,296 2" squares from 216 unique fabrics.

I've finished a few blocks and I love how they're turning out!

I've been taking my time with these. I set up all the squares for a block and then when I'm sewing other things, I sew a pair as leaders and enders. Before I know it, I've finished what I'm working on AND finished a scrappy trip block.

Sometimes I make a whole block start to finish but I actually prefer to sew them as leaders/enders. I like that I'm getting two things done at once...the thing I'm supposed to be working on and a scrappy trip block as a bonus! It'll take me much longer to finish the quilt this way but I don't mind. I'm focusing on the journey and it is so much fun!

  2. I REALLY have to try the leaders and enders method. Like sewing two quilt tops at a time.
