I finished my scrappy trip quilt top!!! I (only) made 20 blocks, so it measures 48" x 60". I usually prefer larger lap quilts, but at some point you gotta call it a day and move on to the next idea. I love the color scheme I went with. So cheery and fun!
I had a few blocks that were troublesome during the layout process. I thought about scrapping those 2 blocks altogether, but before setting them aside, I thought I should try to rearrange things.
here's the block before....
and the block after.
I took the block apart (only one seam!) and rearranged the two halves. Lining up all the navy squares in one diagonal line was more pleasing than having them disjointed. I repaired the other block in a similar fashion and I was able to use both of them after all! Hurray!
I even found time to fold up all the leftovers and tuck them back into my stash. It feels great!
