The Scrappy Trip Along Pink Quilt is Finished!

The Scrappy Trip Along Pink Quilt is finished. Sure, part of me wants to name it-?Scrappy Trip Along: Composition in Barbie, but lets just call it the Pink Quilt for now. It is FINISHED!

After longarm quilting the beige quilt, which I shared last week on the blog, I realized that the quilting on this quilt would probably not be noticeable. I decided to abandon any ambitious wild quilting designs and opt to practice a linked circle design.

See what I mean? Or actually… you don’t see… it is really hard to see the stitching at all. My friend quilted her Scrappy Trip with the same design. She placed the circles in each of her 2″ squares. Wow. It looked amazing…. but …. um, that seems like alot more work. My squares are 3″ and I decided to create the circles to span two at a time. Squint and take a closer look at the image; click on the picture to enlarge it.

Ultimately, the quilt back is covered with linked 6″ circles. The backing is a complete piece of a vintage flat sheet.

  • Make a holy-crap-that-is-alot-of-pink Pink Quilt
  • Make a very controlled quilting design using the actual quilt piecing as my guide.
  • Quilt with variegated pink thread.

I was so far out of my comfort zone – I had to add a stripe binding to bring it back around. Hooray for stripe binding, right??!!

If you aren’t familiar with Scrappy Trip Along, it is a free pattern by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. The quilt is created using a tube-based, strip-pieced method and makes up very quickly.
