baby trip around the world

Last week, completely out of nowhere and without much thinking, I started making a Trip Around the World quilt. It was all so sudden, I just kind of looked at the enormous "stash" of scraps threatening to take over my studio and started cutting. Yes, I definitely need to work on my impulse control as I had neither time nor any need for this quilt :(.

At least I stopped myself after nine blocks, just enough for a baby quilt.

I used Bonnie Hunter's very popular tutorial to make my blocks and I absolutely loved how fun and relaxed it was to piece them.

I decided to tie the quilt as all these colors and pattern reminded me of vintage quilts and I thought
little white ties in the middle of each square would make it look pretty charming. 

Of course I totally underestimated how many little knots I'd have to make and my poor fingers were sore for days. I still think it was worth it though :).

finished size: 36" square
fabrics used: different scraps from my stash
batting: Warm and White

Talk to you soon. Svetlana

Linking up to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. Me encantan tus trabajos. Un abrazo.

  2. So cute, I started one of these last week also, must have been something going around!

  3. So sweet! I love this pattern! Made it for a wedding gift and really want to make one to keep! Bravo to you for all that tying! It's funny, I have two old quilts that my mother in law made and she tied them and my boys just love, love these quilts. Something about all those quilt knots makes the quilt special!

  4. Wow this is gorgeous! It is so inspirational I wish I could just drop everything and make one! You have such an eye for putting scraps together. beautiful!

  5. You've been so busy since the last time I was here visiting. I love your stuff.

  6. I haven't seen a tie quilt in ages, love it :)
