I need the Trip Around the World Quilt booklet by Jane C. Smith. I have the directions from Family Circle Magazine of June, 1986. I want to make some other sizes using this method. I will be happy to pay for the booklet. Can anyone help me. I have tried to contact several people who gave e-mail addresses on the site, but no responses.

Have you checked ebay? I know of another easy/fast way to make "Around the World Quilt", it's a book by Blanche Young called Tradition with a Twist. It's my all time favorite quilt book!

I know Jane Smith personally. I do not have the booklet for I was not even around in 86. I would love to see the booklet I have so much respect for her. I believe you can purchase the book from here. http://www.newe  amp;Category=143


If you know the concept of the quilt, there might be sizing instructions online but it is difficult to come by.

I am looking for the 1986 Family Circle magazine instructions for the 8 hr quilt for the Trip Around the World pattern. I have seen some old posts on here about it, but nothing recent. Does anyone have those instructions?

Many years ago, one of the women's magazine published an article with instructions for a quilt. It was a "Trip Around the World " quilt made in 8 hours. My daughter made it for her Home Economics class and it turned out nice, but over the years I lost (or accidentally threw away) the magazine. Does anyone have these instructions that they could email me?


Thank You,
Mary from LA

Blanche Young has a book "Trip Around The World" it is out of print, but you can go to book stores online or online shopping and find it. I took her class in the early 80's and she is by far the greatest quilt teacher. She simplified the process of cutting, sewing, and putting together all of her quilts. She does many books with her daughters. Just Google her name and you will get tons of great information about her. (08/18/2008)
