What a fun new project! Your fabric choices look great so far! Sounds like you had a lovely trip. I look forward to watching your TATW progress :0)


I always like the colors that you choose. I love hand piecing and quilting , it is somewaht of a lost thing i think with everyone in such a hurry. I think the colors are awesome in your blocks. I grew up in Youngstown , and Cincinnati Ohio but I live in New Jersey and we love going to the Islands of Mass. We had friends on Nantucket and we visited in summers there. Its been a while since we have been back so I know the feeling..Izzy


The TATW challenge sounds like fun, could you share the link or is it a private group?


I have followed your blog for years and when you first popped up in the TAXC feed I wondered if it was you. On FB I am bibbot. I am trying not to think what will come next but let each row choose itself. Totally unlike me. I am never good with keeping up but hoping I can this time.


Your TATW sounds (and looks)wonderful! What a great idea for a relaxing hand stitching project.:)


Ah,fried clams. I haven't had those in years. I use to visit my mom and dad every summer in
Rhode Island, their last home before Dad retired. A feast of lobster rolls and Little Neck clams was always a must.


Wow. As usual, your fabric combinations are stunning Jan. Will this be a traditional trip around the world with just one center for the whole quilt? Or are there many TATW blocks? Looking forward to following your progress!

whee, fun!


Oh dear.....this challenge is calling to me too! I've resisted so far, but yours looks so lovely, I fear I'm weakening! Like the look of your seaside break!


LOVE your blocks, but the clams! I used to live in White Horse Beach and I miss the clams!

I am a long time quilter and ashamed to admit that I do not recall this "pinwheel" piecing method. I think I can figure it out but do you know if there is tutorial anywhere? Would love to use it.

I just found your picture of a wagon wheel quilt you were working on in 2010 and which you were thinking of embellishing with crazy quilt style embroidery. I don't know if you ever did the stitching, but I found it when trying to find an image of a quilt like an antique my great great grandmother (Gramma Daisy) made in 1897. It is very like yours with the wagon wheel design and lots of deep rich colors and black background. She decorated each seam with a different style of crazy quilt - like embroidery. Fantastic. Your concept was really authentic. Grandma Daisy lived in Bluefield WV - in the mountains - and she was born in 1836. The quilt used lots of silk (which isn't holding up so well) and velvet. Hope your quilt came out well.
