I might have started a Trip Around the World quilt.
I don't want to say that I drank the kool-aid. And besides, at this late in the game, having seen 4+ other cool quilt movements come, doesn't this make my TATW quilt retro?
I cut my strips at 3" to make the most of my fabric stack of FQs, and each block finishes at 15". I've finished nine blocks, which will yield a 45" square quilt. I'll be adding some sort of border to two sides to get to the 48"+ mark.
A few weeks ago, I read about Quilts Beyond Borders call for finished quilts due mid-July. I couldn't help myself, and I found myself emailing them about sending one. And once I finish this retro TATW, it'll be headed out, eventually to go to a Romanian orphanage. Woo! I told myself I had to use fabrics I had on hand, and if I can squeak another quilt out, I'd like to send two.
I know we quilters are busy peeps, but if you think you might have a bit of time to finish a quick kid's quilt--the specific request details are here, and they can be really simple quilts--please consider sending one.
Today, I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, this week hosted by Greenleaf Goods.
