I’ve reached a stage with my trip-a-long of having sixteen blocks finished and sewn together. I didn’t actually have enough scraps to attempt this so I used some fat quarters and cut into some half yards and I cut the strips at 3 1/2′ so my top now measures 60′ x 60′.

|and the other half|
(I decided to settle for inside pictures after a little incident with the red and white quilt which had to have three goes through the washing machine to recover from it’s attempted photo shoot).
My trip was semi-planned, using ‘Odds and Ends’ words for the main diagonals but now I’ve run myself out of several of the prints so I need to work out some kind of a border with the ones I have left…
In the meantime, I reached a stage of being behind with several bee blocks so I’m going to press on with those and link up the trip-a-long with Melissa at Sew Bitter Sweet Designs for A Lovely Year of finishes and I’ll come back to finish it up a bit later in the month. If you haven’t linked up yet with one thing you want to get finished in February, there’s still three days left.

Oh no, what happened to the red and white quilt? Did it get covered in something unseemly? The trippy is looking great and I hope you get it done!
