The Traveling Quilts ~ Round Four

Traveling Quilts Sent

We are running a bit behind on the Traveling Quilts Bee, but I am happy to have Round Four to share with you today! For this month, I worked on Monica of The Happy Zombie‘s block. I love everything Monica does, so you know, no pressure! :)

Traveling Quilts Received

Monica started her quilt with this section – the house, surrounding star and perfect embroidery. Dan added the Flying Geese, Penny added the undies (can’t forget those on your travels! Also a little birdie told me these might be coming out as a pattern in her Sew-Ichigo shop later!) and Jacquie added the HZTV (Happy Zombie TV) section.

Fly with Me

I decided to carry on with the “Travels” theme and add an airplane! I used Rashida‘s latest tutorial for the Art Gallery Fat Quarter Gang, Fly With Me. My only issue was I didn’t check my scale when I printed it, so everything printed a bit smaller than it was supposed to. It just involved a little extra trimming to make seams match, but wasn’t a serious issue.

Traveling Quilts Fabric Pull

I picked a rainbow of colors to coordinate with Monica’s original block. (I switched out the purple at the last minute). I included some prints from Violet Craft’s Madrona Road because I knew Monica and Violet were friends and thought she would like seeing some of that fabric in her quilt. The plane is a black and white text print from my local quilt shop.

I hope you enjoy your new block Monica! This quilt is now with Ashley where I’m sure she will add something amazing.

    Everyone’s contributions are great! Your plane really adds something to it though…. it really makes it come together. Can’t wait to see the finished project!
