This series began in February 2011. A picture of a 1930’s Trip Around The World (Jewell Willoughby, Kentucky) caught my eye.
It was an obvious pattern for hand piecing but I had no idea how to machine piece one. The internet didn’t come up with any solutions so I sat down and worked out my own and the first quilt was made.
The series now comprises twelve quilts, ranging from miniature quilts to large bed size ones incorporating stars. All of the quilts have been hand quilted, the majority of them using my own hand-.dyed pearl cotton threads and big stitching.
I currently teach workshops based on my unique construction of this classic pattern.
