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.
