WIP Update – Scrappy Trip Along

After what seems like forever the British weather has finally let me photograph my #scrappytripalong quilt.

I made it for Sean and as soon as I finished hand sewing the binding the monsters had it on his chair, I haven’t even managed to wash it yet!

To be honest as I was quilting this bad boy I really wasn’t sure, in fact I started to dislike it. I’ve never really felt like this with a project before and it upset me a bit, especially as it was a gift for hubby. I don’t know what it was that I didn’t like but it didn’t sit well with me. Once it was on the chair and I ignored it for a few days it finally started to grow on me, in fact I love it now and had great fun photographing it with monster no2 in the park.

The quilt top was made using only scraps, some of which were given to me by the lovely Karen. The backing is an Ikea bargain which is a firm favourite with a lot of quilters, I managed to get nearly 3m for £6! For the binding I went for a tape measure print which was actually a free metre from my loyalty card at Hometown, Rochester. So all in all this was a bargain to make, which I guess makes me like it even more.
