Follow the Yellow Brick Road

Or is it the long and winding road?

This quilt is one of those put  away projects, I picked this kit up at Tala's Quilt (no website) Shop in North Adams, several years ago. I fell in love with the fabric but I don't remember the company or the designer, the pattern is the Yellow Brick Road. Any way this was going to be a quilt for me but then decided to give it to my sister-in-law. I even found the fabric  for the backing and then nothing , it just sat there. I finally got it over to my sister, Judy, to quilt it then decided it needed to be bound in Kona charcoal, so a trip to the LQS, still nothing.  Seems like my creative juices just stopped flowing for a while... I was way behind on my block for A Dozen Quilters Bee, had other project to finish up, just couldn't get out of my own way.  Well this week we've been on spring break, and I've been busy catching up, and finishing up. This quilt will be hitting  the  road  to Charlottesville, VA, Happy Trails...

MY Sister Rocks!

Here is a picture of my red and white Irish chain quilt. This puppy is huge, I have no idea why I made it so big.  My wonderful sister quilted it for me, just in time to enter it on our guild's quilt show. I'm sorry for the poor quality pictures but I had to snap them off quickly before dropping it off for the show.

Judy finished the quilt at 9:30 Friday night and the latest the quilt could be dropped off was Saturday at three p.m. I got up on Saturday cut the binding,  and finished it with 10 minutes to spare. Did I say this was a huge quilt? It measures 120" by 122".
If your in Western Massachusetts please pop into our quilt show, Pieces of Time 
it runs from Friday til Sunday. I'll be there Sunday because this week is also MQX and I'll be attending that as well, check it out if you're in Providence, Rhode  Island.
