Some Playing Around with the Scrappy Trip

I have been wanting to make one of these blocks for some time but have been busy getting my pieces finished for our quilt show.  That is almost done so I am playing today - especially since I actually did some cleaning yesterday!  Not a whole lot but did get some things straightened out and some of the dust caught up in the Hoover.   How I hate housework anymore!!!!!!  Back to this little block - it won't be used, I don't think, but it has helped me in figuring out what I want to do.  The middle diagonal row will have to be very dark in each one - maybe even the same fabric.   I actually just jumped right in and cut strips and squares from those strips - that was wrong.  I had forgotten that you strip piece sixteen inch 2 1/2" strips  then slice the piece into 6 two and one-half inch strips.   Read the directions, old woman!!!   I think this will be fun to do and, Leslie, do you want to do one too?  Anyone else? 

I will be having steak on the grill with Sher and Barc tonight plus I hear there  will be skype sessions with some very nice people including two adorable little kids in Denver and Portland, too.  Looking forward to all of that!!
