scrappy trip around the world quilt

Earlier this year, my instagram feed exploded with pictures of scrappy trip around the world quilts.  It was insane.  It seemed like every single quilter out there was digging into his/her stash and creating these wonderfully random blocks.  (If you want to see more, take a look at some of these #scrappytripalong examples) I’m a huge fan of scrappy quilts that put different color fabrics together in unexpected ways. Not wanting to be left out, I pulled out a huge piles of scraps and began cutting.  The blocks are deceptively easy to put together so I whipped a few together over the course of a couple of weekends.  The challenge with this quilt is that in order to make a quilt large enough for a queen size bed, you need 32 of these squares.  This will be a work in progress for a long, long time.








This is how it’s supposed to look once you put all the blogs together:
