Good morning! My second entry in this year's Bloggers Quilt Festival is in the Small Quilts category.
This little quilt is my version of Lori DeJarnatt's (Humble Quilts) quilt-along from last fall. We were traveling at the time, so my chosen fabrics are a mix of some purchases while in Oregon and scraps from previous quilts.
I hand quilted this little quilt using a portion of a large stencil in the cheddar squares and corners, with a simple ditch and cross-hatch in the blocks, and diagonal lines in the outer border.
This is one of my favorite little quilts, finishing at 25 inches square. I used Hobbs Polydown batting, and Aurifil 28 wt. thread for most of the quilting.
I found this lovely old toile in one of the stash bins, and there was just enough for the back.
A lot of quilters participated in Lori's fun quilt-along last year. I wonder if we'll see more Country Roads quilts appearing in this years Bloggers Festival.
