I guess if I really think about it, the quilt pattern that I have used the most and have enjoyed making the most is the Trip Around the World. It's so versatile and just downright fun. It requires a LOT of different fabrics and that's where the creativity comes in. I always use 2 1/2" strips for my quilts, so today's "jelly rolls", "designer rolls", "Bali-Pops", "strip rolls" - whatever they are called - are just perfect for these quilts.
This quilt was made for the contractor who remodeled our former kitchen. He saw my quilt hanging on my entry wall and innocently asked about it. I knew he was going to be getting married fairly soon, but I was still surprised when he said he wanted a quilt for his new bride as a wedding present and he wanted me to make it. I was very flattered and was thrilled to have a somewhat unusual (for a wedding gift) color palette.....black, red, gold and white. How fun!
He was very happy with the finished quilt and I was happy that he was happy! :)
