My daughter wants me to make her an Around the World quilt, but can't find a pattern online. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I found this from one of the quilters on another thread. This is the only way I know how to cut and paste, I don"t know how to do the page link like others have posted. This is the tutorial that Butterfly Blue posted.




(Picture of finished quilt and picture of the color chart I made on graph paper appear at the end of this post.)

I made this quilt from scraps. There is probably an easy strip cutting method to do the Trip Around the World pattern, but I don't know it, and using scraps, it wouldn't have been an option for me anyway. I have included cutting instructions for yardage as well as cutting instructions if you are using scraps.

Finished size of the quilt is 36" by 48" (or thereabout - within an inch or so. I forgot to measure the finished quilt before I gave it as a gift)

Yardage Amounts:

Red Fabric: 3/8 yd. (1/2 yd if you prewash and expect shrinkage, or just to be safe)
Orange Fabric: 1/3 yd.
Yellow: 1/3 yd
Green: 1/3 yd
Blue: 1/3 yd
Purple: 3/8 yd (1/2 yd if you prewash and expect shrinkage, or just to be safe)
Navy Blue: 1/4 yd
Backing: 1 and 1/2 yd.

Backing is brought to the front for binding, so no binding yardage is given.

Cutting (if using yardage):

Orange, yellow, green, blue: cut (2) 4 and 1/2 inch strips, width of fabric. Subcut into (16) 4 and 1/2" squares.

Red: cut (2) 4 and 1/2 inch strips, width of fabric. Subcut into (16) 4 1/2" squares. Cut one more 4 1/2" square for a total of 17 red squares

Purple: Cut (2) 4 and 1/2 inch strips, width of fabric. Subcut into (16) 4 1/2" squares. Cut two more 4 1/2" squares for a total of 18 purple squares

Navy Blue: Cut (2) 2 1/2" by 36" strips

Cutting (If using scraps):

Red: Cut (17) 4 1/2" squares

Orange, yellow, green, blue: Cut (16) 4 1/2" squares

Purple: Cut (18) 4 1/2" squares

Borders: Cut (2) 2 1/2" by 36" strips

Assembly:

Lay colored squares out on the floor according the the color diagram. Starting at one end, assemble each row and press. After rows are assembled, check to be sure all of the colors are where they ought to be, then sew rows together.

Attach Navy Blue end borders.

When you lay out the quilt sandwich to quilt it, leave at least 2 to 3 inches of backing showing on all sides, to ensure adequate fabric for binding.

I made an all green one, hand pieced, cutting 2-1/2" wof strips into 2-1/2" squares as I went along. I started at the center with a single square of the darkest green, then put squares of the next green on each of the 4 sides of the beginning square to make a '+' shape. For the next round, I attached the 3rd green at one of the points, then 'stair-stepped' the 8 squares of this round around the center '+' to create a diamond shape. I continued in this manner with each additional round until it was the overall width from point to point that I wanted. My biggest round had 19 squares on each side of the diamond (a total of 39 squares across). At this point I started decreasing the # of squares on each side to create the 4 corners. The final 'round' consisted of a single darkest green square in each corner.
I am now at the point of deciding whether I want to add a border or just sandwich and bind 'as is'.
This is not a particularly quick way to do it, but very easy to take with you wherever you may be, and does not require a lot of concentration while you are doing it, so lends itself very well to doing while visiting with family and friends or while watching tv.

I am particularly interested in the rjrfabrics one because my hometown in Lansing, MI where MSU is located and for a number of years lived in Detroit so I may have to do one of these.

Thanks for posting those instructions, I'll bookmark this page.
To Deb, to copy a link for a page:
Go up to the very top, where you type in a web address.
highlight that line of information, hold down the CTRL key, while holding it down also press the C key (keyboard shortcut for copy), the go to where you want to "type" that info. Click on that area, the hold the CTRL key again, while hold it down, also press the V key (keyboard shortcut for paste) and there you have it. If it doesn't "link" later, make sure you have http:// in front of the www

Those keyboard shortcuts will usually work in any program. :-)

aenathan.com is where I got my Trip Around the World. I have made 4 of them this year. You can print out a blank quilt and then color in your colors. It goes together real fast. I can sew up one in about a day and a half or less...(if everybody in my house would leave me alone) It is called Porcelein Around the World.
