    How To Make A "Trip Around The World" Quilt the EASY WAY!

    Enjoy !

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Pretty quilt. I have made it a couple of times using Eleanor Burns strip set method. A lot easier.

      I'm so happy they did a tutorial on the this - I've been thinking about making one after watching their tutorial on tying quilt and I watched a video yesterday with a different method where you s ew strip sets then unpick and resew the end squares and it was confusing as heck to me, lol.

      This method is so much easier and I love the idea of doing it in Christmas fabrics!

        Which one do you think is easier? I wasn't sure which you meant

          I meant Eleanor Burns Method was easier. You make strip sets, sew in to tubes, then cut strips. As long as you have your fabrics numbered it is easy to know where to unpick seams.

            When she started, I thought she was going to do strip sets. I think I'd get confused using the clock method.

              My DH watched the video with me this morning. He wants one! Which tickles me, as much as he loves his quilts, he doesn't usually get so excited about one that he picks out the pattern. Guess I have to put that one on the top of my list.

              I've always admired the Trip Around the World quilts, but have been intimidated to try. However, Donna made it look easier than I thought it would be.

                I agree that Eleanor's method would be much easier, but was happy to see how Donna does it. Different strokes for different folks....

                  I'm with you on that! I love having different options. Knowledge is power.
