Trip Around the World Quilt

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on December 5, 2008.


If you were in the chat room the night of Sterile Eye’s interview on Dr A’s BTR show, then you know I offered to make his two girls quilts. Here is the first one. It is for the 4 yr old. The pattern is called Trip Around the World (or sunshine and shadow). It’s a fun pattern to play with colors. This one has most of the colors of the rainbow or color spectrum (ROY G BIV) though I began with the blue in the center and then progressed out with the pink to red to orange to yellow to green. The quilt is 42 in X 50 in. It is machine pieced and quilted.

Here is a closer view so you can see some of the fabrics. They include a girl in a sailor suit, some small animals, some clowns, stars, etc.

Here is a picture of the back of the quilt. The fabric is from the Robert Hoffman collection called Kaleidoscope. It continues the color spectrum and adds the purple not on the front.

    Gorgeous! Colors and pattern are lovely, and having the different animal squares is a lot of fun — there is even a little badger!?! Lucky, lucky 4 y.o.
