Patchwork Quilt!
My pride and joy, and ongoing project. I work on this one when the mood strikes me. It's the beginning of a King size quilt using a Trip Around The World pattern. There are approximately 2,750 21/2 squares. I am about halfway finished. People always ask me if I will sell it when I am finished...I tell them no amount of money is worth the time, money, effort and stress therapy I have put into it. :)

Beautiful quilt!! Have been wanting to make a king size one with this pattern myself, have started collecting the fabric but am curious how many diferent kinds of fabric you used and about how much of each??? any help you could give would be great.

It is pretty, and I made a quilt sewing every square as well. Never again! When I am doing my projects, I am all too anxious to see it finished. I strip piece now.

It is truly beautiful! Making a quilt is something I have always wanted to do but I haven't made that leap of faith yet!
You see so many quilts for sale and I always wonder why because of all the work that is invested, the time, and money! I always come to the conclusion that they must have needed the money or they died.
I agree with you, don't sell it, display it on your bed and then save it for your grandchild!

I love the idea of making your own quilt and I agree with you on not selling, I am sure you have put so much into it Happy I think I need something like that to pick up whenever.
It looks great, keep on trucking Happy
