9-patch Trip Around the World

I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. We did. We got to visit with 5 of our 7 grandsons and their parents. We got home from our 10 hour drive last night and I checked out a few pins on pinterest and followed a link to Nifty Quilts. She saw a cool quilt at an antique shop.....
A genius worked with stripes and 9-patches. Could she have done this without a design wall?...So I went to EQ and tried to make an electronic copy. I got this;
I like it. It could use up a lot of the stripes that I have collected. Using 2" squares this quilt is big at108 x 108. If the squares are 1.5 inches the quilt is 83 x 83.
