"A" is for Another Trip

Another Trip Around the World quilt:

I had so many strips cut from my first Trip Around the World quilt that I decided to make another one.  I'm loving this pattern so much plus with two little girls it's always better to have two of everything. 

First I starting laying my strips in a pattern:

Then I sewed the strips, cut them into 1" pieces and starting laying out the diamond shape:

Filling in around the diamond to continue the pattern for a complete rectangle:

Then I connected everything, funny how a 1/4" seam allowance totally changes the look of the pattern:

Quilted my sandwich together and added some binding:

Back view:

Now both girls have similar quilts for their dolls.


  1. This is just adorable, and is in perfect scale for the beds you made. What size were your finished squares?

  2. Sierra,

    The finished squares on all of my miniature Trip Around the World quilts is 1/2" x 1/2". I started with 1" strips and used a 1/4" seam allowance. You're right about the scale and it feels great to be able to use up so many fabric scraps. Good luck!
