I jumped on this band-wagon a little late, so you may be sick of seeing "trip around the world quilts"
This quilt was so fast and easy since it uses 2 1/2" strips, which I already had. This is the 3rd quilt to be made with this collection of fabric and I'm proud to say it's all gone!!!

I think this magazine was what started the whole parade, and it was fun to be able to find one.
There are so many options to this quilt. I've seen a low volume version from Miss Rosie's quilt's, I've seen them with borders, and without borders (my favorite), you can color coordinate or just go scrappy . . .
But the best part is that you can use up all your scraps! All of them . . . no picking and choosing. (Well, I did throw in the blue to add interest)
I've been dying to try this "orange peel" fmqing design. It was amazingly easy.
Then starting at the bottom, scale up one column curving your diagonal line to the next corner like so . . . (bad set of photos, sorry)
Here's a tutorial by "Oh Frasson". She explains it better than me. (and has better pictures)
I'd love to give away this great magazine. If you're interested, leave me a nice comment :)
