Finish It Up Friday ~ Sea Sick Scrappy Trips

For better or worse, my Scrappy Trips Quilt is done! I gotta tell you, as I ran out of good combinations, toward the end, these blocks got even uglier!

But I forged ahead and finished so I could at least fold it up and put it away for a few months!

This top finished at 96 inches square and has 64 blocks. I had 4strips leftover. It was hard to find a good p,ace to get pictures of this behemoth. 


Not all the rows are showing in the picture above. In the one below,you can see how much iverhangthere is. This is a queen size bed.

I hope I like this better when I get it quilted!


Have a great day!

    This scrap quilt is inherently beautiful! It’s colorful nature and it’s thrifty use of scraps is terrific!

    Love the views from a distance – like an impressionist painting. I realized the greens really tie things together and give it unity. Love that you had so much green!

  7. Carie says:

    Oh wow that is a gorgeous riot of colour! Perhaps you’ll love it more when you’ve not spent so much time with it and it’s all quilted and snuggly!!

  8. Claudia W says:

    I don’t see the ugly! That is a very pretty quilt, even with the blocks you say are ugly!

  9. I think it’s fabulous!

    i think you will love it after quilting and washing. it looks like the old timey kinds of quilts of just scraps that got used over and over. you can find something different each time you use it. good job. patti in florida

  11. I think it looks great.

  12. I think it is amazing how lovely scrappy trips are to everyone who hasn’t stared at the fabrics forever while making it. I do like yours

  13. Val W says:

    That turned out quite sassy and full of spunk. I really like it! I’m glad you forged through your doubts about it.

  14. Linda Dutch says:

    A wonderful scrappy finish! That’s a lotta blocks!

  15. It has been fun to follow along with you as you work on this one. Your reactions to the blocks have been pretty funny. I have to admit that it feels a bit crazy to me, but I’m sure you’ll find a good home for it when it’s finished (with someone who likes it better than you do!). Thanks for linking to TGIFF 🙂

    Love all the pretty colors/fabric you incorporated into your pretty quilt.

  20. Sandra B says:

    Katy, I love this quilt!!! Hopefully, it will grow on you, and you will come to love it as well…..with so many fabrics, and colors, it is a cheerful quilt, to be sure….

  21. Sharon says:

    This is really pretty Katy! From a distance it looks completely different. I made the blocks for one of these quilts and the same thing happened. They were fun blocks to make.

  22. Teje says:

    Hi! This is gorgeus quilt! Beautiful colours and I like the pattern! Should do that myself, too. x Teje

  23. Connie Wegner says:

    Beauty! You continue to amaze me. How many hours a day do you quilt?

  24. I love it! It has a real 1950’s look. You need some catseye glasses and a long cigarette holder and white gloves to complete the look. I really love it!

  25. piecefulwendy says:

    I agree, I love the scrappy look! I have a postage stamp quilt that my aunt made years ago (before strip piecing was a thing) that fits a double bed. This quilt reminds me of it. What a great use of your fabric scraps!

  26. Jayne says:

    I don’t see ugly at all! Its a gorgeous scrappy quilt! So many square…well done!

  27. Lois Stimax says:

    Are you kidding–my daughter would love this! It is truly a bohemian quilt!!! Very modern! I love it too by the way! You are an inspiration!!

  28. Cathy says:

    I LOVE it! Good for you to keep going because now you have a modern scrappy quilt. Hugs

  29. Ha! I don’t think it’s ugly – I think it’s fabulous! It reminds me of a quilt that would have been handed down from a grandmother. You know, one with a history. How do you plan on quilting it?
