Neutral Scrappy Trips

The tumbler quilt is in timeout. I opened the neutral jelly rolls. That’s the hardest part, right?

I sorted into groups of eight that are roughly alternating light and dark.

Sew these into pairs send press to the darker strip.

Sew the whole thing into a tube.

Time to dust off this Accuquilt die!

I used it to crosscut my strip set.

Easy peasy!

Use the seam ripper to open the tubes into strips like this.

And sew them together.

One block done, a bunch to go. Have a great day!

    I’m so glad I read this post! I have 55 more blocks to make for my scrappy trips, 32 of which are already strip-sets. I can’t wait to cut them w/my AccuQuilt 2 1/2″ strip cutter! This will speed things up quite a bit! Why don’t I think of these brilliant things?! Thanks Katie!

  2. Everything about this project looks like so much fun!
