I've been eyeing this design for a while! So we are going to do the scrappy trip around the world block using the Quiltville tutorial, here.
You can follow the link or my instructions below. It will make a 12x12 square.
Start by cutting six 2.5" x 16.5" strips. Please make one of the strips kona white (bottom strip in the picture)
Choose fabrics that will have nice contrast between lights and darks and stick with smaller patterns like below. Ask if you have any questions choosing fabrics!
Sew your strips together, starting with the white and making sure the last fabric contrasts well with the white.
Press seams every other direction.
Sew your six strips in half, creating a tube.
Square up one of your ends. Cut the strips into 2.5" strips to create six tubes.
Use your seam ripper to open your tubes, staring with the seam next to the white, placing the white in the bottom. Open each tube in succession to create a pattern like below.
Sew strips together.
Press flat and your done! It came together quickly and I think it will be so fun together!!
