    My grandson would also love this quilt. I have already made up a town(in my head). What a fun quilt. BrendaK

    I usually always hand quilt my quilts. And I hand piece when I can, although I do a lot of paper piecing, which requires a sewing machine. I guess I'm old fashioned, but I prefer the hand quilted. Thanks for your compliments! ~~Ann~~

    The pattern also most looks like a 3 part drunkards path block.
    Is it?

    Thanks

    I love it! I, too would like to know how the roads were created. Very cool!

    Wonderful hand pieced and quilted by an artist! Now you need some little cars to run on the roads!

    Yes, you do beautiful work. My grandson would have LOVED this quilt only a couple of years ago. He could drive matchbox cars around on the floor for hours. He's not so quiet now.

    This quilt is pictured on the cover of "Great American Quilts 1995" Publisher Oxmoor House. Pattern is in the book along with a lot of other good patterns.

    The pattern that I used came out of the "Scrap Quilts Galore book, from Oxmoor House. It has 12 easy to make quilts, full size patterns and complete step-by-step instructions. This quilt is on the line of Drunkard's path with an extra piece or two. I hand quilted the entire quilt, but left the "Roads" not quilted. A fun quilt to make and the photo in the book shows a little boy sitting in the middle of the quilt playing with his cars and trucks. ~~Ann~~
