    Traveling quilt

    I am a member of a Modern Quilt Guild here in Maine. In 2018 we participated in a “traveling quilt” project where I made my first block and journaled about my quilting inspiration and then the quilt was passed to a different member each month who then added a block or section to my quilt. Some of it had been pieced but some blocks were left loose so I finally (like a jigsaw puzzle) put it all together. I just took it off the longarm after nearly 10 days of ruler work and some FMQ and rolling it back and forth. It is the first time I attached the binding on the longarm too, now I just have to hand stitch it to the back. Name:  AAAB5A12-9DE3-418F-931C-1BA7A01B16A7.jpeg

    I bet this was a fun project shared among your MQG - did each member pass along their own 'traveling quilt'? I so love the cheerfulness and randomness of the design/layout and you look to be having a lot of fun on your Q, too!

    Fabulous finish

    Your quilt is so eclectic. It does give the impression that all the participants focused on the journey and Created an amazing destination.

    Where is the final journey for a traveling quilt? The quilt is very inspirational.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    that is just so cool! I'm becoming more and more modern in my quilts--trying to use up some of my more traditional fabrics now for Christmas presents so I have space for more modern fabrics!

    What a great quilt, using so many blocks and strips and yet it all is coordinating.

    yes, Christine, each member that participated ended up with a traveling quilt of their own. Each one was so different based on their “theme” or prompt.

    what a wonderful, different quilt. i love your idea. very inspirational quilt.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Sounds like a lot of fun to do and your quilt turned out so nice. I guess this is something like a Round Robin quilt. You did a great job on placing the blocks that were left loose.

    I can only respond by saying they are improv and not traditional blocks. 🙃
