    Trip Around the World

    I want to make a queen-size Trip Around the World. To enlarge it from a smaller size (lap, twin, full) would I make the squares bigger, add more colors???? I found a queen-size pattern that showed using a lot more colors/patterns than I wanted to use. Any suggestions or links to a pattern? Thanks.

    I think the more colors the more the pattern shows.

    I had quite a few colors and prints and I just kept going with the pattern until it was the size I wanted. I did it the old way with one square at a time, that was a lot of years ago. I really liked how it turned out. I had the pattern on graph paper with the colors marked with colored pencil, they were the good old days.lol

    I think you could do either. Larger blocks will give larger areas of the same color. Small blocks with more colors will make it more colorful. Either will be beautiful.
