I started this project a year ago while I was pregnant and just finished it in time for my daughter’s 1st birthday.
It is a panel from JoAnn’s with a bedsheet used as the backing. The binding is broadcloth that I found in my stash.
Everything on this quilt was done by hand—machines never touched it. I quilted around each state and province, as well as the word “Mexico” and the compass rose.
My plan is to eventually document her travels on the quilt using colored thread or yarn to show the route and then a button or some other knick-knack sewn on at the destination to represent what we were doing (a ball or bat if we went to a baseball game, a horse if we go to her great-uncle’s and ride his horses, etc.)
