#scrappytripalong

I feel a bit bad about only instagramming my progress on the scrappytripalong.  Hectic times means that I have not fully synced all my tech, so the photos have been on my iPad, and blah-di-dah I have finally got my a*se in gear!

A week ago I decided to join in, I knew immediately I saw the first few blocks appearing on twitter/instagram that resistance was going to be completely futile and jumped in feet first.

Anyone who has been following me for a while will know that I love Denyse Schmidt and have been collecting fabric for a while; and to be honest, not really knowing what I was going to do with it, but knowing for sure that I wanted a full quilt of only and as much DS as possible.


So 36 fabrics pulled, excluding the reds, darker blues, and also some of my outright favourites that I've kept for best, and off I went!



If this is all new to you, this tute, this flickr group and this hashtag are all you need, and a big bit of floor space...


Easy blocks that come together nicely; I have even managed to get 6 more finished this evening, having packed up Christmas, done the washing, ironing and sorted all the school bags, PE kits, uniforms and lunch boxes this afternoon.  I was shattered, but I really wanted to increase my block count to 30...


Only 6 more blocks to go, but with school, work, swimming and life going back to normal tomorrow, this will definitely be on my FinishAlong list for Q1-2013.

  1. I am resisting, but yours look amazing. My stash has been sorted today, in theory in preparation for building works but...the littlest one starts preschool this week!

  10. Hadley- I had been avoiding this one, as I have quite enough on my plate already, but look at yours, follow the links, and I think I have to have a go. I am not at all sure if I love you more than before or am trying my best ( fail) to go off you!

    Anyway- I think you hooked me in.Oh dear.

    thanks!

  13. Stop it, stop it, stop it!
    I've managed to resist this so far (okay so I've been too sick to sew) and now here you are showing off your DS collection scrappy trip along! I've been collecting too (from some of the same sources!) And you are just being a bad influence tempting me to crack open my collection and make a quilt as fab as yours is going to be!
    Stop it! You hear?!

  17. Your quilt is one of my favs of the whole group.
    Get this app PHOTO TRANSFER. You can tranfer photos from the iphone to the computer and I am pretyy sure it works for ipad too. You can also upload directly to Blogger from your iphone. But you probably already know that. Blogger app.

  18. I'm resisting. I think your fabrics and colours look beautiful. A great way to use Denise Schmidt fabric with their small scale patterns.

  19. It's looking awesome Hadley!!

    For future reference on the Ipad photo thing (I have the same issue!) If the photos you want to blog are all on Instagram then you can actually share these with Flickr once instagram knows your flickr deets. Then you can put them in your blog post by going to the photo on Flickr, clicking "share" then copying and pasting the html code into your blog post. If the photo doesn't appear straight away then don't worry, just click over the the html screen then straight back to compose. That should make it appear and you can centre it from there.
    Easy peasy once you are in a rythym & then you can still blog without syncing all your technology :)

    Hope that helps

  22. I think it looks so beautiful- just so girlie and pretty, I'm finding it hard to resist all of these projects, but i am still resisiting, just!!!! : )

  23. It looks fabulous. I absolutely adore Denyse Schmidt's fabrics, such a good choice. I've done four blocks but have decided to wait before I make more as I have a 'to do' list as long as my arm that I have to tackle first. Can't wait to get back to it though, so much fun to make these blocks.

  24. I love the look of the scrappytripalong quilt blocks, but I MUST NOT catch the bug. Far far too much to finish as it is. Yours does look wonderful, though....

  26. Gorgeous - the nicest one I've seen! I'm sure you must have more hours in your day than I have, otherwise you have to be moving at the speed of light to get all that done!
