2371 Squares

I have been slow stitching, by hand piecing this Trip Around The World  quilt for approx. 4 to 5 years.

The squares were cut 2" square finishing at 1 1/2".

After the first couple of 'rounds ' I decided to only use reproduction fabrics.  

Many, many hours hand piecing

 Choosing each new round.

 I decided I wanted it square rather than rectangle so squared off each corner.
It has 2371 squares and is approx. 75"square.

At last flimsy finished and ready to go to Judi for basting!

Thanks for dropping by

Your TATW quilt is about the same size as mine, have you thought about how you will quilt it? I've seen people quilting Lines and Baptist Fan, both look good.

There's so much work in that quilt! It's just beautiful. I guess you're going to hand quilt it next - that should be enjoyable over winter. Thank you for linking up to the Peacock Party.
