The EQ8 Block Spotlight this month is Around the World block. This is a special combination of sixteen Drunkard Path blocks.
My first step was to use Serendipity to make a version of the block on point. The on point and normal version were placed in a nine-patch arrangement. Then, it came time for the borders. A plain border was used to accent the blocks. Then, a pieced border using similar Drunkard Path block, Peace Doves, was added. Finally, a plain border framed it all.
I do have a thing for pinks and reds, so the quilt was colored in those shades. I didn’t stick with the traditional coloring, which really made the layout look so different.
The result is Petals and Passion, a queen-sized quilt. What do you think?
