Pastel baby quilt pair

I was looking for another picture when I found the pastel baby quilt that I donated to our church's quilt drive a couple of years ago. I like it when the Trip Around the World pattern doesn't repeat the same fabrics on the outside diagonals that it uses on the inside diamonds. I also like fast strip piecing methods. This presents a problem for the Trip Around the World pattern, because there aren't the same number of squares of each color.
The way I solved this was to make two at once. In these two quilts, I've used exactly sixteen squares of each fabric, except for the center square.
