Country Roads

Yesterday I finished my version of "Country Roads" sew along designed by Lori of Humble Quilts.  She always chooses such fun quick projects.



I already have this hanging on my living room wall.  I only wish I had chosen a different color thread to quilt it.


Here is a photo of the back of the quilt.


This some of the fabric I won from Barb at Fun with Barb from a giveaway she had.  It worked perfect for the backing.

Be sure to check out Lori's current post.  She posted photos of some antique quilts she saw in France.  I LOVE the first quilt she showed.  I already let her know it would make a terrific sew along project.

The weather here has been on the cool and rainy side.  However, today the sun is shining and the temps are up.  I have windows open and am enjoying the day.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying the Autumn.

Hugs, Cathy

Love your little quilt. I couldn't participate this time, as I'm going on a quilt tour and ran out of time. I might make it when I get home.

Fantastic job on Country Roads. The backing is super fun. Fall is definitely in the air and makes you even want to walk down a little country road.

Love it! I used to have the backing fabric in blue and made some wall hangings out of it. It's a great backing!

Cute little quilt! I want too make one too, but haven't had time due to the finishing of things for the quilt show. Maybe now that the show's over I can get to it. Love that beautiful fabric for the back!

It's being autumn here too. I love all the pretty trees as they change colors. I'm not looking forward to winter though. That's the only bad thing about fall - winter's next!
