Globetrotting: Final Setting Pattern
We have spent the last nine months traveling the world with Pat Sloan for her amazing Globetrotting Mystery BOM, and it has been a beautiful journey! Just one more stop on this trip: it's time to tie it all together into a gorgeous quilt top, and Pat has truly outdone herself with the two different colorways! We hope you've enjoyed your journey with us, and we also hope you'll share your quilt tops in the Flickr group! Pat has a special giveaway for you if you'll just get your quilt finished up and submit your pics. More info below!

Setting Pattern
We are ready to finally assemble our quilt! Let's look at how I filled in those spaces. Here is the blue colorway with Everything Blue, designed by Marsha McCloskey for Clothworks:


I floated all the blocks with the background color.
The corners are checkerboards balanced with more light than dark blocks in the blue/cream version.


Now here is the red / gray colorway with my fabric line, Bobbins and Bits, that I designed for Moda:


In the red/grey I made them scrappy. The checkerboards remind me of all the city centers I've visited. Plus I added a bit of appliqué to my Washington DC block.. you might want to do the same!


Can't Wait to See Your Quilts!

Thank you for coming on this very fun year long Globetrotting journey! Now I have a challenge for you.

Make your TOP by the end of November and share it in our Flickr group. I am going to be giving away a nice bundle of my Moda “One for you, One for me” fabric & Aurifil thread to someone that finishes their top by Nov 30, it might be you!

Once your Globetrotting is done, THEN you will be ready to join me in 2015 for my next Free Mystery BOM from Free Quilt Patterns.Info!

The supply list for 2015 will be shared in December, so be sure you have Globetrotting done.

More from Pat on Globetrotting

I highly recommend that with dark/light quilts you prewash your fabric. I don't want any tears later when you wash that quilt and it runs blue onto white ..eep! The step of prewashing can be done quickly and then you are ready to rock and roll.

Many of you have joined me at my quilt group on Facebook called Quilt with Pat Sloan. We are sharing our Globetrotting blocks and MUCH MORE! Everyone has been showing the quilts they are working on, asking for help and advice, and having more fun than you can have at any spot on Facebook.. so join me by clicking the link above.

We have a Flickr page for sharing photos. Click the link below to go to the group page and become a group member for free, then you will be able to upload pictures of your own materials selections and the blocks that you create throughout the BOM.
