As I watched Chris H, Cristina, and Catya putting together their palettes for their Trip Around the World quilts, I knew I had to make this pattern with them. Although this pattern is a great one for tying, which is what Chris H and Catya did, I machine quilted mine. Cristina is still in the process of finishing her and is experienced in both techniques, so it will be interesting to see which she chooses to do. Chris H pointed out that with this quilt, my color palette hasn't changed much in the past 20 years. Yep, still into greens and purples. This quilt will remain in the studio.
