~Trip Around the World~

Here is a quilt I just finished today, it is called “Trip Around the World”. I used the Eleanor Burns Quilt in a day pattern for it. Of course, my quilt was not finished in a day…more like 2 weeks. I have made a Trip Around the World baby quilt in a day but this is a full size quilt for my guest room/sewing room/computer room. I wanted something bright and bold. I do feel slightly selfish making something for me with holidays quickly approaching, but I couldnt wait!!

Now the hard part..borders. I hadnt really even given it a second thought when I started because I knew what I wanted the bold colors to be.

I am going to the Amish Quilt Shop Hop in Holmes County on Thursday…hopefully I will get some little Amish lady to point the perfect fabrics for my borders.

  3. Great quilt! I am chiming in with Lola, as I tried to reply to the comment you made on my blog, but you are set up as no-reply. If you go to I Have a Notion blog, she has directions on how to fix the no-reply. Oh and btw, maybe I will see you at the Amish Shop Hop 🙂
