Experimenting

I've been piecing more Scrappy Trip blocks as leader/enders and just so I can get all of the blocks done by our first OMQG Sew-In this Sunday. I'd like to lay them all out and piece them during the Sew-In. Something I didn't expect in doing this quilt is how much fun playing with the colour palettes in each block would be.

Sometimes I tried putting some fabulous colours together….







Other times I just tried whatever and was pleasantly surprised by the result…





And other times I just tried whatever and got, well, whatever… ;)







It's going to be fun to put all these blocks together on Sunday!

  1. your blocks look great and I'm looking forward to seeing the top sewn together. it sounds like fun to play with many color pallets on a smaller and quicker scale in a block versus a whole quilt

  2. I Love it! I am working on a trip quilt as well for SEW WE QUILT's Kona solids blog hop in January (You should consider joining us since you are super talented with solids). I love what your blocks are doing, you are right they are very surprising in how they work, even when you think fabric might not get on well. Keep up the great work!

  3. Fantastic! Thank you so much for that link about leaders/enders - that's the first explanation I've read that actually made sense to me!! I have a stack of 2.5" squares just sitting on my desk so I will have to try it! I think it'll have to be scrappy because I'm not clever enough to plan anything!

  4. These all look great, but I love the second one down best - that purple with chartreuse and black. Lovely!

  5. Loved seeing this! I am going to do the St. Louis 16 patch in solids for my son and he is picking the colors! Now I know whatever he picks will look pretty cool. Great work. I love leaders/Enders!
