WIP Wednesday

Thanks to our new Boulder Modern Quilt Guild and Denise, I've finally joined the scrappy trip around the world block craze.

I'm not usually one for doing too many quilt-alongs since I have way way too many of my own designs swimming around in my head and not enough time to get them done. That said, now I see what everyone is so excited about. This is such an easy block to piece thanks to Denise's great demo. Love the Elmers glue trick for matching seams.

I've been collecting fabrics in the aqua/blue/lemon/yellow range for awhile now ever since I saw this great eye catching display in one of my favorite Ft Collins shops, The White Balcony. The color didn't come out too great in the original photo but I still remember the impact it had on my creative ideas.

Now I think I'll be making more of these fun scrappy trip blocks. Even have ideas for other color schemes. Who knows  . . .

If you're like me and just never got around to making this one, it's never too late.
Here's the link to the original Scrappy Trip tutorial.

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. Hop over and take a look.

  1. Oh yes, they are lovely fresh colours! This will be a beautiful quilt!

  2. Love those bright colors!

  3. How pretty! I can't get enough of aqua "anything" lately!

  4. Loved that qa!! Don't know the glue stick trick tho so do tell!

  5. Love it, Anne!!! What a treat to see you today too!

  6. You have great color taste! I love the photo at the quilt shop, and your block color combo. Wow, but I cannot imagine having more ideas of one's own than time to do them. I simply cannot come up with an original idea without a brain freeze resulting in utter frustration. You have a gift, for sure.

  7. I have been aware of the aqua-yellow combo since my niece took that as her email name, and those were the colors of her wedding. But I've never done any quilt in that combo--yours inspires me to do just that.

    I hear you on too many quilts in my head business. Sigh.



WaHoo!!! You're leaving me a comment. Thanks for stopping by and do come back again. Quilt on, Anne.
