Traveling Quilts ~ Round Two

Pennys Quilt After

I’m having so much fun each month with The Traveling Quilts bee – both creating blocks and watching the rest of the group work. (If you aren’t familiar with the bee, see this and this.) For round two, I received Penny’s blocks from Jacquie. Penny started her quilt with the “Grow” section with the sprouts and the basket. I think we can all agree that she is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G paper piecer. Jacquie added the perfect selection of scrappy tulips.


I decided that every garden needs a sun to grow – so I made a sunshine using this template from the Purl Bee. I was inspired to use this pattern by Jeni’s color wheel. I think this was my first time making a circle. It wasn’t so bad! Lots of pins though. My blocks looked like torture devices as I was sewing them. The quilt blocks are now off to Ashley, I can’t wait to see what she adds!

      Yes! I was thinking about doing it this round, but I just wasn’t sure I was ready to have the quilt “committed” to a layout just yet.

    I love your sunshine so much, Faith! And I would not be able to commit to putting it together either – it’ll be the same for me, I’m sure! Unless I was the end person, then it’d be so much fun! Penny is going to have one awesome quilt!

    Love all the elements in this! Co-incidentally I just got an e-mail from the person currently working on my travelling quilt (which is secret) who was having a little wibble!
