|Scrappy Day Trip Quilt|
58 inches x 70 inches
After having spent the better part of two days writing the instructions for my strip pieced Scrappy Trip Quilt I came to the conclusion that this really this needs to be a proper detailed pattern. I am sorry to disappoint anyone that may have been looking for a free tutorial but a tutorial just wasn't going to cut it. I like my instructions to be comprehensive and that includes detailed diagrams and photographs for every step of the process which also makes this pattern suitable for beginner quilters. The tutorial became lengthy and at first glance it looked like information overload for something that is really not complicated. A structured pattern will deliver all this information in a format that you can print if required and peruse at your leisure.
ABOUT THE SCRAPPY DAY TRIP QUILT PATTERN (PDF FILE)
- The quilt is strip pieced in blocks and blocks are constructed in such a way that all seams will "nest" when sewing the individual blocks together, as well as when sewing blocks together into rows, and when sewing rows together into a quilt top. This not only makes the task of matching seams and sewing a quilt top easier but helps to ensure that the seams will lie flat resulting in an smooth and even quilt top.
- Although not specifically written for use with Jelly Rolls the pattern is Jelly Roll friendly.
- Pattern includes a foundation paper piecing pattern for the (black) Triangle in a Square Block as well as paper templates if you prefer piecing these units with templates.
- The finished quilt measures 58 inches x 70 inches.The size of the quilt can however very readily be increased or decreased by adding more or less rows/bocks.
I have LOVED every part of making this quilt! I love the repetitive task that is block making; choosing fabrics and the easy strip piecing process. I finished the quilt by ditch stitching all seam lines, taking nothing away from the fabrics and the design, but giving the quilt texture and a lovely soft drape.
For the back of the quilt I have used my current favorite text fabric Newsprint from the Story collection by Carrie Bloomston, and have matched it with my signature black/white stripe fabric for the binding. I have used Warm & White batting from The Warm Company; a low loft batting perfect for use with light and bright white fabric.
The actual finished quilt is for sale and is listed in my Etsy Store.
