I have had the material for this quilt for some time now, I cut the strips according to Eleanor Burns, Trip Around the World, then I stopped and put it all away, away for a long time. After I finished my King Sized quilt, I pulled this one out and I have been working on it at craft night at church for the past few months. I pulled it out yesterday and finished it, and I do like it. On the selvage edge of one of the pieces of material it gave a copyright date of 1991. That means that the material is as old as my daughter! So to say I have had the material for while would be an understatement! I had a large piece of one of the materials and I assumed it was large enough for the back, however, I am incorrect so I will need to visit a quilting store to purchase enough of something 'christmas-ie' for the back. It is lap-sized and I think it is a great size for one person. I checked through my fabric stash, and I have other fabrics, a group of pink, purple and green, would be nice for a little girl, and I have bright colors that I purchased on the clearance racks. So maybe I will get them out and cut them into strips as this design is nice looking and Eleanor Burns makes it easy to put it together.
