A Zillion Pieces...

Imagine doing these trips around the world quilt blocks the way they did years ago...tiny square by square..
What a difference strip piecing has made for tiny pieces like these.. makes it so easy, fun and quick...
I'm just running up a few blocks at a time, and playing with the setting....
...seeing where I might need to add more blue, or more red.
I think it's going to be a very pretty quilt, a bit different to the civil war quilts that I have working on lately...love roses too!

From my diary...Don't forget to smile, it's the key that fits the lock of every one's heart....♥

  1. Hi
    I agree, these blocks are such fun!I made a quilt of these after reading Bonnie Hunters blog.The quilt went to our Community Quilts in Taupo. I had a computer crash and lost my pics - so I cant share my quilt with you. Moral of the story? Back up all pics!
    Loving your blocks
    Cheers

  9. Oh yes, it is going to be very pretty. Mt first large quilt was the Trip Around the World, but we did it in strips and step piecing. I like your way!

  18. Julia, These are the prettiest colors together. When I was 20 yrs. old, I had a neighbor to make me a trip around the world quilt out of knit fabric. It was so heavy and warm!
