It’s a Great Project for a Favorite Combination of Scraps!

Sometimes simple is the best choice for a quilt and that’s certainly the case with this darling mini quilt. The traditional “Trip Around the World” design was used to produce a charming little quilt to display on a wall or table.

A coordinated combination of prints in various values from one fabric line gives the quilt a beautiful cohesive look. However, any mix will be lovely, and in fact, this gives you a good opportunity to combine some of your favorite scraps. Think seasonal colors too for a nice spot of color to enjoy every year.

Trip Around the World Mini Quilt Tutorial

While each square within the quilt is only 1″ x 1″, don’t let that throw you. A strip piecing technique makes the quilt simple to construct. Straight-line cross-hatch quilting is a wonderful finishing touch.

The completed quilt, designed by Samantha from Aqua Paisley Studio, is approximately 17-1/2″ square.
