Today I officially start work on Isabel’s Trip Around the World (30′s style) quilt.
I always draft my own patterns. I enjoy the process and can customize it just how I want it. Assembling the quilt usually entails just piecing a couple dozen large blocks together to make a top. But with this quilt, since there aren’t any blocks, I have to piece over 1800 squares together. Over 1800 squares of 27 different colors. And not mix up a single block’s position, or else the whole quilt will be off.
And I have to figure out how to do this myself.
I haven’t found any Trip Around the World tutorials that match the pattern of mine. I’ve found variations, but not mine.
So I’m going to make my own way here. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
Here we go!
