For me part of the lore of quilts is the names. This pattern is called both "Sunshine and Shadow" thought to refer to the different times in our lives, the good and the bad, the difficult and the easy times, the rainy and sunny days. The other name is "Trip Around the World". It makes me think of the old movie--Around the World in 80 Days-- or trips I'd like to take or trips friends have taken (and I through them). This quilt is in the planning stages (as TBTAM's Italy trip is) and may end up with different colors, but right now I like this contrast.
