Last weekend I starting cutting a Trip Around the World quilt. I was drawn to this pattern by this quilt and this quilt. Both of these ladies are Michiganders and both support Margaret's Hope Chest--I am sure that those two facts have no connection to why I want to make this quilt--just giving a shout out.
I did absolutely no planning for this quilt--my daughter and I picked out the fabrics and then I started cutting 100's of 2.5 inch squares. After a decade of quilting I have come to the conclusion that there are two types of quilters--the kind that plan out their quilts and kind that don't. Which type are you? As a result of my reckless abandon I had (tons of) extra squares which I made into this baby quilt to add to the Haiti collection. I am going to back it with flannel with no batting and straight-line quilt it.
As for the larger twin size Trip Around the World quilt--it is coming along--I am on day 4 of piecing it. Maybe this weekend I will finish it.
I am linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish it Up Friday.
Have a great weekend!
