My ATWQ is finally finished!
Click once, then again to enlarge for detail.
The quilt measures 48"x72". Since 12" blocks would make a really BIG quilt if they were all on the same side, I decided to put the blocks on both sides.
Here are the additional blocks I made to represent the different states and countries.
I sewed a running stitch from state to state to show the route the blocks took.
This background fabric was so fitting for Texas.
Originally I was planning on making the whole back of the quilt a Map of the World.
I printed out all the names on photo fabric...but when I washed the quilt all the printing came out. Not sure why exactly...I've made up labels with pictures and the ink never washed out???
Anyway, I had to write out the Loop order, but since it was already quilted...it was not easy and the lines ran vertical. It's ok though, the names and origins are what I wanted documented.
I added Glaucia's name, even though she dropped out, because my starter block had Brazil in it.
I ran out of room, so I placed this over a large orange snowball block!
The quilt took exactly one year to make it AROUND THE WORLD!!
Have a wonderful day!
