Not sure why I'm so in to my Scrappy Trips project lately but I've got a rhythm going and I'm making lotsa progress, especially thanks to my tiny helper holding down this stack of blocks.
I was originally going to do a standard ST quilt but then I started playing in EQ7. That's like just having a little look-see at Pinterest ... it goes on and on and on until someone cries uncle!
I ended up with the above design, using 20 blocks.
Yesterday, as I was preparing the last 5 blocks I pulled up the EQ file to make sure I remembered the block count correctly and started playing again. Very quickly I decided that one more row and one more column would show my funky layout much better.
I layed out the finished blocks this morning. I'm not sure the design is as prominent in scrappy colors but I think if I use some brighter yellows for the rest of the blocks and arrange some of these "darker" blocks at outside corners, I can make the design stand out. What do you think?
Thinking about it now, I should have used just 1 fabric for the center. *IF* I ever make another (and I can't believe I'm saying this considering I didn't like this project a few weeks ago) I would try using just one fabric.
Oh and go ahead and steal my design, you know you wanna, but you have to promise to show me the quilt that you make from it :^)
