WIP Wednesday - Tripping Along

 I have made some progress on my Scrappy DS trip along quilt these school holidays - here are the first 16 blocks:
I started back in April with 180 strips of Denyse Schmidt fabrics - most of them are from the newer ranges (Picnic and Fairgrounds, Winding Roads, Daisy Mae, Sugar Creek, Aunt Edna, Richmond, Chicopee, Flea Market Fancy and Meadowlark) but some of my sweet quilty friends have been kind enough to send me some pieces from her earlier ranges (Hope Valley and Katie Jump Rope) so there is a real mix of DS fabrics in there. 
I have used the darker strips of fabric to run along the diagonal and it is working well so far.
And a few blocks later I am up to 20...only 10 to go now!
