Twice Around


For the whole last week, I went to bed counting.... How many little squares would I have to sew onto my Teeny Tiny Trip Around the World each day to finish the round by the end of the month? After all that, I sat down Friday night after a long week and sewed on nearly 30! And with that, the second round this month was done.


I'm not sure why I've got a couple of ripples there.... fingers crossed they'll press out when it comes time to baste.


For some reason, though, this month's progress was especially satisfying. In the first new round, I made a pattern of an orange print with solid orange, and that definitely added to the fun.


Swirling the seams isn't too bad these days. It still takes a while, but with just a couple of rounds, the swirls fall into place fairly easily. Pressing them is not my favorite part of this process at all, so I usually do it in spurts.


Anyway, I'm still not ready to stop, so on we go!

  2. I hope the ripple presses right out, too. Sometimes even just storing projects folded can introduce little things like that for us to sort out. I think the print / solid orange round is really lovely. Adding in those variations in the rounds is lovely.

  3. I have a shoe box filled with 1-1/2 inch squares that I plan to do this with. Thank you for the inspiration! I think the back is as interesting as the front is pretty!
