Scrappy Trip Blocks Finished

Here are the Scrappy Trip blocks I made last week. Two inch squares made 12 inch blocks. I cut all the squares for a single block and laid them out before sewing. Not the quickest method but it certainly was fun to have so much control over placement. Still planning a border.

Constructing these blocks I learned to choose a general layout carefully. For example, repeating rows of light, medium and dark is both boring to construct and dull to view. The blocks improved when the rows were more randomly placed. 

I wanted a red/pink/orange main diagonal but found the intersection of those rows unappealing. So I alternated r/p/o on the longest and second longest rows. 

Fret not; enjoy the day.
