Trip Around the World Pictures

It's about 38x43 inches. I used 3" strips and my seams were about 3/8ths of an inch instead of the normal 1/4th of an inch. I am quite proud of it and I love how quick it all came together! Thankfully when I was sewing it together I wasn't using the smallest stitch setting otherwise it would have taken forever to rip the seams apart and fix it!

I originally wanted to make a Trip Around the World quilt for our queen sized bed and I found a pattern I loved, got it almost done and gave up on it because I messed it up and didn't want to have to resew some squares back together and unpick other squares.

I'll have to figure out exactly how much fabric I would need to make a queen sized version, unless somebody has already figured this out. :)

It looks beautiful! I was thinking about a queen size, too, but don't know how much you'd need - sorry.

Very nice. That stuffed animal in the picture looks like he is trying to reach it so he can snuggle with it.

HI,

I was wondering if you would be willing to share a quilting pattern for trip around the world. I have four different colors of fabric well three different blues and an off white color. All are too yards I want to make a full size.
