Finished Top!

 I just finished this 'Trip Around the World' top this morning.  After starting the dishwasher, a load of laundry and an episode of 'Wives and Daughters', I glued myself to my sewing chair and wouldn't allow myself to be distracted by children wondering why I was watching a movie in the middle of the morning :) 
I needed to get this done and out of my head so that I could focus on spring cleaning and preparing for our first set of guests who arrive next weekend! 

I am making this quilt for my daughter Anne.  The quilt I made her two years ago was accidentally packed into our long term storage--which means we won't see it again for at least 3 more years! 
And so we decided to go ahead and make a new one--this time 'A Trip Around the World' quilt for a little girl who has lived around the world--she has lived in 5 different countries in her short 10 years on this earth :) 
I love the bright colors she chose!

I am linking up to Amanda Jean's 'Finish it Up Friday'.  Have a wonderful weekend-- I will be cleaning :)

You should run a "guess how many squares are in this quilt" contest. You must have a LOT of patience! It's really beautiful. Love it!

Wow. It looks GREAT! And I love Wives and Daughters, too.

If you finish quilting yours before I finish mine I'll be quite jealous, since you started yours after mine. ;) Have you decided how to quilt it?

I've wanted to make a Trip Around The World (quilt, not the real thing!) for a while. Yours is beautiful!
