    Default No Passport Required

    I call this "No Passport Required." It is a Trip Around the World pattern on point and is made with fabrics representing places all over the globe. It is a big one--112" x 122"--quilted on my DSM. The squares in this quilt finished at 2.5".

    It was a gift for my daughter who can now travel around the world without even leaving her bed.

    I have never made this but it has always been one of my favorites. You did a spectacular job picking contrasting fabric on each round! And I love your little story and the name. How long did it take you to make?

    Pretty and special
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    Really beautiful quilt. Just so you know what a special job you did, I recently saw a very similar quilt at a museum!

    Oh. My. Lanta. This is so beautiful! Love the way the look changes when you put it on point.

    I have since learned that this layout is also called Boston Commons. I wish I'd known that when I was trying to figure it out!

    Thanks, everyone, for the kind words.

    Angelia that´s a wonderful quilt what a great job she has done, sure her daughter will always love him. I love square quilt and I have made two Bonnie Hunter, and now I am cutting squares for another diamond quilt, by the way how many squares have you had to cut for that quilt? I am already 1.700 and I am still have to cut some more. Congratulations and you do not need a passport, you work is admirable worldwide
