Trip Around The World

It's a flimsy!  And it only took me a couple of years to get this one done.

My decision on keeping it small or making it bigger turned out to be an easy decision. I had the strips all cut for 7 more blocks so that is what I made. I moved the "center" so it is asymmetrical and just added a 5th vertical row.  

So there are 30 blocks using a total of 180 strips.  Most of these were cut using fat quarters and I figure that I've used about 5.5 yards worth of 2.5" squares in this top.  That was WAY more work that I thought it would be when I started.  I have a lots of leftover batiks so I think I'll end up with a scrappy binding too.


  1. I really like this one - nice job!

  2. It is sooo pretty! I love your color placements of sprinkles of lights and darks and the setting is very dramatic. good job all around!

  3. Love this!! The asymmetrical center is perfect :)

  4. Beautiful! I love this design.
