{trip around the world}

this quilt has been sitting around my sewing room for a few months. i had wanted to donate this quilt and thought linking up with 100 quilts for kids was the best motivation to get this one out. i used this tutorial to try out the pattern. though a little time consuming, it was worth the effort. i used white, every other strip, to break up the colors.
the fabric is a bunch of leftover reproduction 30's fabric i had from a previous quilt i had made. this quilt also gave me practice on my machine binding.
i'm linking up to 100 quilts for kids.
