The pattern is called
"Yellow Brick Road"
The Quilt is a lap size (57"x75")
I used 12 different fabrics and
each one was cut into what they call a "Fat quarter".
From there I cut each fat quarter and then sewed them together into blocks of different kinds of fabric. Then I laid them out on the floor and played around with the blocks until I had it the way I felt it looked good. (Making sure there weren't one fabric bunched up together.) Then I numbered each block and each row and sewed them into rows until I had the whole thing together.
Then I added and inner boarder and then an outer boarder. Then I put the binding on. When putting the binding on I sewed it to the front, but then I had to hand sew it to the back.
I worked on it 8 hours the first night, 7 hours the second. Then I took a 3 hour Long Arm class which teaches you how to use the Gammill aka Long Arm. I did the quilting all free style. I found it very hard to follow a stencil. Once that was done it took me 2 days to hand sew the binding.
This is the front of the quilt.
Here is a photo of the front but also showing some of the back of the Quilt.
I have made anther quilt and I have one in the
works. I will post them as soon as I can.
