Scrappy Trip to Stanthorpe quilt

It has been over 4 years since I made my first Scrappy Trip quilt using Denyse Schmidt fabrics and it is still one of my very favourite quilts.
So I thought I would make another using a blue/teal jelly roll along with a few extra grey and white fabrics.
To make the most of the jelly roll strips, I used a tutorial from Allison at Woodberry Way which uses the full WOF (42") of the strips rather than the original method from Bonnie at Quiltville.
The blocks from Allisons tutorial use 8 x 21" strips and finish at 16" rather than the original 6 x 16" strips which made a 12" block.
So to make a lap sized quilt, I only needed to sew 12 blocks to make a quilt of 48 x 64".
Then I simply quilted through the diagonals of the squares in each direction which gives a nice texture.
All of the blocks have the white tone-on-tone print running through the centre to create a pattern.
These photos were taken on a recent trip to Stanthorpe, so I thought it only fitting to rename the quilt to remember our weekend away.
This project was on my FAL Q4 list for this year so linking up with the 2017 FAL team.
