    30's Trip Around the World

    I'm so happy to have this quilt finished! My wonderful hubby encouraged me to purchase the kit 10 years ago! I was intimidated by the 2000+ little squares and the strata style of assembly. I used 100% cotton batting and a very small meander (stipple). After it was complete, I machine washed and dried it to give it the antique look. I love it!!! My husband says I have to keep this one. I think I will. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

    Thanks! I can't take credit for the fabric. It's all 30's reproduction fabrics based on an antique quilt that was a kit. I love the fabric too and have lots left over which I'm making into a hexie project.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Gorgeous pallet! Working with little blocks is intimidating, I agree. I almost died doing my postage stamp quilt. Kudos to you for staying the course and bringing it to such a beautiful finish. Thanks for sharing.

    If you just can't bring yourself to keep this, you could send it my way... LOL! I love 30's fabrics anyway & this TATW is just a gorgeous example of them! You should be so, so proud of yourself! Kudos!
