    [img]I was told that the Yellow Brick Road pattern was good for fabrics that you want to show off, so I used it for these great fabrics. Then my cousin's daughter asked for a quilt in green,purple and gray. I had to add the gray in the border. It was fun to do the meandering quilting. Now I can use that favorite of F words - FINISHED,or tout fini!

    Very pretty. The gold thread in the machine quilting really sets it off :!:

    Gayle,
    Actually, it took me 3 months to finish! Just kept interrupting it with other things, you know. What is the pattern in your avatar? Very pretty.

    It's called "Twice as Nice" from Glad Creations. It is a queensize quilt I made for DD#3 when she went away to College. I love it to. I plan to make another one!!

    Bev, it really is easy to do!! I have used that pattern to teach a couple of people how to piece quilts!! Easy and Fast and doesn't require fancy quilting stitches either, you can just quilt along the diagonal cause it is a 9in finished block!!!

    Thank you all. YBR was the pattern we used in the Beginning Quilting class I took last year at LQS. I used a bunch of varied but coordinated fat quarters and it is a perfect quilt for Spring/Summer. They still use the pattern in that class because it is easy to cut and piece. Try it,Bev. You will love it!

    i guess it scares me cuz i normally just make up my own quilts and shy away from actual patterns.. BUT I did try the shoofly and i think i did fairly well ..... I'll try it as I now have that pattern.....
