Finish It Up Friday ~ Vintage Many Trips Around the World

I still can’t quite believe this is done! A sweet online friend and blog reader, Jan, gifted these blocks to me several years ago.

It took me a long time to decide how to put them together.

I used a plain muslin on the back.

It really shows off the quilting.

Someone put so much work into these blocks.

It certainly looks like spring to me!

Dear Jan, I’m so thankful for your generous heart! I think my emails to you have been bouncing. I hope you know how much I appreciate these beautiful blocks!

Just for fun, here are a few pics taken after washing.

Have a great day everyone!
