Scrappy Trippin'

 Since I was off work today I decided to dig out my scrappy trip blocks and start playing.  After adding one block I took a picture and decided I like the barn raising look.

 I kept adding blocks while watching some old movies (Serenity and Hackers) and eventually decided it was big enough!

 Two blocks are turned the wrong way in the picture below, caught one before sewing and one after!  This kind of quilt really requires me to sit back and study it!

 Got crazy and added a lime border.

 Then nothing looked quite right for an outer border so this black leafy fabric wound up there.  Tomorrow I hope to make a backing for it and call it done (for now!).

Patter is a free one on Quiltville!

believe it or not I found a light cover-up at JCPenney yesterday in just this pattern.
Had to have it, I have a class with Bonnie today :)

Great layout!

I love this pattern! It's my first Bonnie quilt, but I'm dojng a controlled center strip. I struggle so much with scrappiness.

As scrappy as this is it definitely needed calming borders!Looks very different once the borders are on.
Good choice Andee!
