Scrappy Trip Along With Selvedges

I tried to resist.

But when the idea of making a Scrappy Trip Along block using selvedges popped into my mind, I knew I was going to have to make just one of these popular blocks for the Selvedge Sampler quilt {WIP}.

When The *Selvedge Supremo* that is Riel from The Q and U Quilting Blog added to my ideas with the plan of having the selvedge running down the centre of the 2.5" squares, I just had to get to work.

First I made the 6 strips needed for the block.  I almost left them like this because they looked so beautiful.  I basically too the selvedge with about an inch of fabric left on and sewed the same fabric to the selvedge so that it ran down the middle of the strip.

I completely apologise for the *crappy photo - it's dark here but I just had to share this with you because I have a busy weekend ahead {birthday celebrations, you know!} and I seriously don't want to forget show you this.

It needs better lighting and more ironing but you get the gist.

It is so ridiculously fabulous.

The white selvedge strip goes across which the Scrappy Trip brings out the diagonal.  Whoop Whoop!  Selvedges ROCK!

Have a good weekend.
