Saturday sewing

I jumped on the scrappy trip bandwagon.
I couldn't resist!
They are 2" finished squares, after all.
(Finally!)
Tutorial can be found here.

I can't wait to hop on the bandwagon! These scrappy trips are everywhere! Working on a quilt with a deadline but I'm hopping on as soon as this one is finished :) Yours looks great!!!Love the colors!

Sarah Craig said...

Beautiful colors! I can't wait to get mine started!!

Auntie Pami said...

I dug out some not so pretty FQ's and am getting started...

Your ruhbarb is beautiful as a scrappy trip, but I knew it would be!

rubyslipperz said...

I dunno if I DARE start another project??? But, this looks like FUN... and I could keep my eyes on stash I already own (vs. that of a quilt shop!).

ummmm, tempting!

hugZ,

Svetlana said...

wow, this looks amazing. I just love all the pretty colors you're using. Genius, as usual.

JaneB said...

I've wanted to do this quilt for awhile. Your colors are great how big will you make it?

JaneB,

That's a tough call! I was thinking about going on the small side, like 48x60, but I like it so much so I might keep going. Not sure!

Kari @ The Purple Quiltapotamus said...

I love it! I might have to jump on the bandwagon too! I love your colors.

Carla said...

So fun. I am doing them too!

Carie said...

What wonderful colours - it looks fantastic!

Anna said...

I love the name Chopped Rhubarb! The Scrappy Trip Along was really hard to resist, but I love the results all over the bloggers world!

Kate said...

It's one very big bandwagon! Loving your blocks so far. This is making me realise which colours are rather absent from my stash!

Theresa said...

Your colours are divine...I'm really resisting and trying to put some WIPs behind me.....awwww, my arm is being severely twisted!

charlotte said...

Amanda Jean we would only be shocked if you didn't want to make a scrappy quilt. lol

patchworkdelights said...

1 I was surprised you didn't come up with this scrappy little number yourself!

2. You did it too! LOOKS FABULOUS!

Jaime Costiglio said...

Amanda Jean that is a beauty! I love the rhubarb color, almost like a field of strawberries. And it has a very vintage feel that's so charming.

Marit said...

lovely, lovely...

Beautiful Work! i too have jumped on this wagon. 2013 is the year I work from my unruly stash. To help I went to a Bonnie Hunter lecture this week She is an amazing inspiration. I love seeing how we can use the same patterns and each create a different beauty.

Beautiful Work!

Linda said...

That's going to be so pretty!

Elsa said...

OH it's lovely! I'm seeing this quilt everywhere on blogland! I've been thinking of making it ~ think I'll have to get on the ride and take the trip (teehee).

karen said...

Oh to find the time to jump on the bandwagon. I've got the tutorial printed. I've got an enormous fabric pull of pink-red-orange-purple from another quilt, so tossing in a few blues and greens shouldn't take long. But work MUST come first (I'm talking to myself now).

Your color scheme looks yummy enough to eat.

Jane said...

This is beautiful! Everything you are doing lately is making my fingers dance over the keyboard to tell you so! I am so tempted to join you but I have a wedding of daughter #2 to prepare for in June!

Just Carol said...

It's beautiful!

Krysta said...

So far I have resisted jumping on, but I have been enjoying seeing everyone's quilts. Yours is the prettiest one yet! Love the colors.

Gorgeous!

treadlemusic said...

It is fascinating that I am reading so much about how "stash busting" is the quilters' 'sport'/goal of 2013! And this "stashbuster" is popping up everywhere.....love it!! Beautiful! Kudos.......

kathy-o said...

Seriously....this is so beautiful! I think you need to keep going until it's at least a Queen!

Karen said...

Love it!

Mary Jo said...

I have to say that is a beauty. I'm jumping on the scrappy trip too after I finish another quilt. Love your Christmas trees by the way.

Flowers in the Window said...

Love it! Thanks for sharing another wonderful blog too! I quite often use the strip piecing method (a quarter of round the world pattern) to make my baby quilts - see here - http://prettyflowersinthewindow.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/cute-and-cosy-flannel-baby-quilt.html.
I hadn't thought of using scrap fabrics though. A great way to use those scrap strips! Have a good week. Maggie xx

Sandra said...

Yikes, everyone is on this bandwagon. Although it's gorgeous, it's not for me all those tiny squares!!

Suzanne said...

I finished up a quilt using all scraps in a new way than I expected. I felt like your kindred spirit. Hugs to you!

Jessica Christensen said...

Yup, I've virtually decided to do this, but I haven't pulled fabrics yet. Love how yours is shaping up. Yummy.

JaneB said...

Really love these colors. I'm searching my stash tonight!

Mama Pea said...

Love the colors. It will be incredible. How you get so much done, I'll never know!

Lana said...

Wow...such an exciting year...I know your home will sell soon...are you all moving to another state? job move?
Thank you for a great year of good blogging and inspiration...I love it here...Happy New Year!

Denice said...

Oh gosh, I couldn't help but join too. I'm not sure I'm loving the colors I ended out using, but I was determined to use only stuff that I already had. Which isn't great anymore since I've picked through it for way too long. It's been really fun though. Yours looks fantastic.
