Trippin' in Aqua

I am participating in Season 4 of  Project Quilting over at Persimon Dreams. This weeks challenge was:

My Entry is called, Trippin' in Aqua.
Trippin' in Aqua, Around the World Pattern

Trippin' in Aqua was made in Dodge City, Kansas and is 48" x 48".

I've been sewing like a mad woman to get this finished.  I wasn't planning on a larger quilt, but as I made blocks, I fell in love. I only wish I had time to make it bigger. 

I was inspired by the quilt along over at
It seems like everyone is joining up to make the Scrappy Trip Around the World with the tutorial over at Quiltville by Bonnie Hunter.

My plan was to use my aqua scraps and incorporate the "Scrappy Trip Along" with this challenge. My mind was changed with the first block (when I fell in love),  and I decided to go with the trip around the world.

I quilted each trip around with the dual feed foot.  This was the first time I used polyester batting and found that it really made the quilting stand out.

Whew, That was a lot of sewing in less than a week. 

I need to quit work for more quilting time :^)
