Happy Trips Around The World {finished wedding quilt}

Well, today was the bridal shower for my sweet cousin and Mom and I were able to deliver this “happy” scrappy trips around the world quilt. Β She is a lover of color (especially pink), so we were hoping this would suit her well.

Of course after Mom and I started making the scrappy trips blocks with these beautiful batik fabrics, we both decided that it was so gorgeous we may need one for ourselves πŸ™‚


I just love batiks and the way they all seem to go together even though they don’t “match”. Β The colors are so rich and vibrant, and put all together into this scrappy trip just seems perfect!

I quilted it in an allover loopy meander using Aurifil 50 wt #2420. Β It was the perfect shade to go with all of these colors… blending in and standing out just enough. Β Mom finished it off with the perfect scrappy binding.

We had one extra block, so we decided to make it into a matching pillow. Β Don’t the quilt and pillow look so cute on Mom’s back porch?!

Hopefully they will enjoy snuggling with them for many years together.

Have a great week,

  1. Mandy (and Leslie)–that is such a FUN quilt. I ove it and I’m sure the happy couple will be so pleased to have such a thoughtful and made with love present! And I can see how you would want one for yourself! I want one!

  2. so, so pretty! Would you consider posting a quick tutorial as to how much fabric and the size? I would love to make something similar for my two youngest granddaughters for Christmas. Thanks for considering. Just a beautiful job well done!
