    My very first Trip around the World

    This one is called Baby Sunshine and Shadows from the book Tradition with a Twist by Blanche Young & Dalene Young Stone. This one is done with strip sets (rather than strip tubes with seams taken out) and I found it very simple to do. I made it to go with my new purple loveseat. (I swear - hubby was with me when I picked the fabric but he can't remember the 3 times I asked him if he was sure!!) I think the loveseat is every bit as purty as the quilt top, but I'm happy with the quilt too!

    What a perfect match - I love that quilt top - I made one for a baby quilt - it was so fun. I bet your hubby will love the new quilt for the purple couch.

    Ooh, very pretty!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Both are beautiful, perfect match for the loveseat. I made several trip around the world quilts using strips.

    I love it and how the border fabric sets it off. Good choices. My first quilt was a flannel trip around the world using strip sets.
