Vintage Scrappy Trips

Remember these? They’ve been calling me to work on them.

I finally got brave enough to square them up. I use the term “square” rather loosely here….. they are a bit skewed and definitely not all the same size. I simply cut 1/4 inch away from the points. It was scary, but I had todo this before I could plan the next step.

I have 15 blocks. I’ve been praying with some layouts.

These are special blocks and I want to do them justice. I’m leaning toward the last layout, but I’ll have to think about it for a bit.

Have a great day!

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    I think any of the lay outs would be great I do like the last one best. What wi you do with the edges,

    Love that furry scale model!

  3. I, too, am leaning towards the last one, but Kathy brings up an important point. The size differences might be most noticeable if pieced flush to one another. Or, maybe the bias will be enough that you can overcome it. It is surely a project worthy of your time.

    I’m eagerly waiting to see what you come up with. I know you’ll do something fabulous.

  5. I’m suddenly seeing scrappy trips all over social media – you trendsetter, you! All kidding aside, I am enjoying seeing these blocks, and how you are playing with the layout. On point is especially fun!

  6. All three layouts look great but I’m partial to the last one as well. The second one will require quite a bit of background fabric which would create a whole different set of decisions!! Have fun, can’t wait to see what you do 🙂

    This quilt will be a treasure!

  8. These are absolutely delightful blocks! It’s fun to be at the stage where you are trying out different layouts.

    I would consider choosing whichever layout seems most forgiving of their variation in size, if there’s enough difference for that to be a factor. Does the second layout do that?
