My half trip around the world

My Half Trip Around the World quilt was inspired by Rachel's over at Stitched In Color. I love a traditional pattern (in fact you'll see more of them around here this year) and I loved her modern twist on the Trip Around the World design. 

I've had it in the back of my mind waiting for the perfect fabric line to appear. Notting Hill turned out to be it - and I'm happy with how the pattern shows off all the beautiful prints. The squares are 5" finished. On the large size compared to the traditional, but really perfect for the large scale prints. It's 50" x 60", so should quilt up pretty quickly.

My next project involves this bright and very boy fabric. Can't wait to get started!

  1. What a lovely way to show off the Notting Hill prints. The solids play a nice supporting role.

  2. Really nice pattern and fabrics!

  3. Oh,Cindy!That is so it!

  4. Your trip is looking wonderful!

  5. Very glad you are enjoying your trip! I'm sure Notting Hill is a great destination!

  6. I almost did this with my jelly roll of Notting Hill. I still may, but I am swamped with other things right now. This is gorgeous Cindy! I can't wait to see your boy quilt!!!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
