    Trip Around the World To the Emerald Isle

    62B4D788-9E95-4628-BE91-BF344CE62B20.jpeg image.jpg
    Took my second Trip Around the World to beautiful Green Ireland (home of my paternal grandparents). I wanted to try this a second time and with these pretty green fabrics ( maybe a shamrock, leprechaun and pot of gold in there also!). This one has less fabrics in the collection than my first one, so it ended up a bit smaller without the borders. I had to get creative to enlarge it to fit the queen size bed. See my corner detail as to how I transitioned from Plan A ( enlarging on the sides only) to Plan B ( enlarging all 4 sides. I forgot that this top was square to begin with, not rectangular.)

    Still found Donna Jordan’s tutorial so helpful in Putting it together, maybe twice as fast! Now I have more ideas on fabrics to try for more pretty quilts. Kaffe Fassett fabrics? What a riot of color!

    Not quilted yet, i have a couple of projects with upcoming deadlines to work on then I will quilt it after they are finished. I am pretty stoked about this one!

          Can’t wait to see it! All kinds of possibilities are swirling around in my head about more of these!

            Donna did the tutorial on putting the squares together. The fast cutting tutorial was on YouTube called power cutting. The one I watched was by an educator from the West Michigan quilt group.

              Beautiful! This Irish gal can't seem to get herself in gear so I'll enjoy looking at yours.
              If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

                        Beautiful Jean. I think it may be my favorite of the two.

                              It’s beautiful. My daughter would love it. Green is her favorite color. I really like the two colors only on the quilt.
