Sherri's Trip Around the World

My friend, Sherri, from Alaska, sent me some pretty fabrics she had extras of.
I decided to use them in a Trip Around the World quilt.
 I was teaching this class and decided it was the perfect time to use these lovely fabrics.
 The back is a Tula Pink Free Fall extra wide.
See those little birds floating around among the
giant dots - love it!
I have a scrappy binding.
 I quilted cross hatching in the center and swirled the borders.
This is one of my favorite color combinations - I used an Amy Butler floral for my starting point in pulling fabrics.
Here's a shortened version of the fabric requirements and cutting to create this twin size, 75" x 99".
You could easily find detailed instructions online......somewhere out there!
Fabric requirements:
3/4 yard each of 7 colors for the center
1st border      3/4 yard
2nd border     7/8 yard
3rd border         1 yard
Cutting requirements:
Cut 7 strips @ 3 1/2" from each color which will give you 7 panels - sew them in the same order.
The borders should be cut the same 3 1/2" width.
(I used what I had on hand for borders)
Thank you, Sherri, for sharing your beautiful fabrics with me. I love this quilt!

  1. All those colors go so well together, and the backing is the perfect finishing touch! I love it! And your fall colors are gorgeous. All our leaves have bitten the dust already. Enjoy!
