On My Design Wall
Continuing with the daily blog challenge, although I missed a few days due to snow and work, I'm back to pick up the pieces. Just a quick post today, as it has been a long weekend. Let's get to it. (And check out the link below to learn about this blog challenge.)
My last big push for completing a WIP or UFO, is this yellow, black, and white Yellow Brick Road quilt. These quilts blocks were actually made by by mom, but she's lost interest in the project so I'm finishing it up for her.
I love the Yellow Brick Road pattern! It's published by Atkinson Designs, and as the pattern reads, is truly "one of life's simple pleasures!" This is the fourth YBR quilt I've pieced together, with at least one more on the horizon. It's an easy pattern for beginners at least, has a surprisingly complex look once the blocks are pieced together. And every quilt I've made using this pattern looks fresh and exciting. I recommend it to any quilter looking for a fun and quick pattern for gifts.
Right now I'm in the process of squaring up the blocks, and setting an overall layout plan according to the the instructions. I secretly love my little pile of scraps, and I'm tempted to find some way to use them in a different project. (Leave me a message below if you have any ideas.)
Stay tuned and you may see another Yellow Brick Road quilt made from the collection of fat quarters to the right early 2021!
That's all for today my lad assistants! Time to get some shut because I have an early day in the quilt lab tomorrow ...binding awaits!
