Mini Scrappy Tripping

Please excuse the over load of baby pictures but I had a little visitor yesterday and I made the most of the opportunity to take a few pictures of my baby niece Summer.

We didn't know if Natalie was having a boy or a girl but once she was born I decided it was the perfect time to make a totally pink quilt. 
Having three boys I very rarely get the chance to sew with anything other than masculine colours so to be able to sew a pretty & feminine quilt was a really nice change.

I decided on a Scrappy Trip Around for the pattern following the instructions for the Scrappy Trip Along that you can find here. I used just 6 Fq's for this one so not quite so scrappy, but if you cut your strips carefully from each FQ like this:

You end up with 9 blocks and a baby quilt measuring 35 inches square. Just the right size for a cot, a pram or just a roll around on the floor!

This quilt will be with me at Malvern in October and Harrogate in November. 
Baby Summer however will be at home with Mum! (She may visit Malvern but I can't promise x)

Don't forget just 6 FQs go into making this quilt so you can have a beautiful baby quilt top for less than £20.00!
