ScrappyTripAlong Inspiration!

So this past week at our monthly meeting we learned all about the Instagram craze, the Scrappytripalong. Here are some links to keep you inspired and get started on your own!

Original tutorial: Quiltville Scrappy Trips Around the World.

I love this idea by Freshly Pieced- Make big HST's with your blocks!

Alternate layout by Erickajackman

Make intentional color and fabric choices like Schnitzel&Boo.

My progress all in blue. (Jessica)

Heather's beautiful top.

Brenda's helpful math. Remember you can get 8 strips from a fat quarter. 

So have you gotten sucked in yet? I am halfway to 56 blocks, and I'm still not sick of making them yet! Also check out the Flickr group. There are some really helpful and fun discussion threads there, plus all the eye candy of course. 


  1. Great post, Jessica. I've been working on mine all morning. I resisted as long as I could, and now I'm completely addicted.

  2. Thank you for the shout out on my tutorial! I have had a ball seeing everyone's blocks and quilts and can't believe this has gone so viral --- I've had this pattern on my website since 1999.
