Quilting “Trip Around the World”

30 05 2013

Many of the ladies in the Quilting Circle that I host once a month have made “Trip Around the World” quilt tops. The thing about quilt tops is that they need quilting! We discussed various ways to quilt this design on a home sewing machine. One idea was quilting a grid of straight lines 1/4″ away from both sides of the seam allowance. Here’s a sample I made to demonstrate this quilting option. Click on the picture for an enlarged view.


Karlyn opted to quilt her quilt “in the ditch,” or directly in the seams.

Another idea is to quilt diagonal lines, making an “X” through each square.


Courtney suggested a “Cathedral Window” look for those with free-motion quilting experience.


If you have additional ideas for quilting “Trip Around the World,” please leave a comment.
