a magic carpet trip around the world

I used Bonnie's trip directions to make this great quilt. I cut my strips 2" by 19", used 9 strips in each set, and found if I squared off the sewn strips before I made it into a tube, it laid flatter for me.

I used a wild assortment of scraps of fabrics--often very ugly ones. I used a bright yellow or dark red in each strip set.

Thanks, Bonnie, for another fun project. My son Seth has claimed this one. I will take it along on vacation to do the handwork on the binding.
