Giant Trip Around The World Quilt Pattern

Giant Trip Around The World Quilt_1

From the Designer: "I have a fun easy pattern for you! It is a giant trip around the world quilt pattern. Not a jaunt across town; think of it as a big trip. Think of more like Jackie Chan’s Around The World in 80 Days, or maybe a leisurely boat ride with Magellan. The blocks are big; the quilt is big and the best part- You can stitch it quickly while using up your less-than-one-yard fabric pieces. The quilt finishes at approximately 88″ x 88″. This quilt is a fast quilt and a perfect gift. I recommend the pattern to anyone wanting to try the Trip Around The World style but doesn't want to commit to a ton of seam ripping. This quilt creates four blocks and is created quickly."
