    my first Journey to Arkansas top is DONE!

    wow this took so long! i had surgery again in the middle of it, would start and then stop, needed more fabric, etc. i think this top was about 4 months in the making and i STILL need a dark brown 2" border to finish the top but it is close enough! i WAS going to put this in the quilt show this year but maybe next year. Yes, i got the pattern from #1piecemaker because HER journey quilts are just beautiful! her DH is on i think his 4th one? if we HAD a bet, i lost! but thank you for looking!! )

    Nice job - I love your colours.
    I'm making the same quilt, also with scraps. My pattern calls it Arkansas Crossroads.

    I really like this quilt patter. What size did you cut your little squares for the 4 patches and what size did you cut your white squares? I just got done collecting fabrics in browns, greens, coral, and light tans to make one of these quilts for a Xmas gift but I have seen this pattern with the squares for the 4 patches cut in 2", 2 1/2", and 3 1/2" and I just don't know what size I want to cut mine. What size did you cut yours? What size does this quilt measure? I would appreciate any thoughts you have. Thanks.
