Yellow Brick Road

Ahh its FINISHED!! LOL, it was another challenge I came away with, and I'm happy to say its finished! The design was very easy, it was just the lay out that I had the most trouble with. Since I'm always looking for a new pattern to try, I was given this pattern and a whole bag of material to work with, and this is what I came up with.

This pattern is a Yellow Brick Road. There were certain ways to cut out the material. Since this is a flannel material, and I also incorporated the leaf, bear, tree, and moose designs, that were more like a flannel sheet material, that was very stretchy. Since all the material had to be precut to a point, I had a lot of left overs, so I will be using those to make a scrappy looking flannel quilt (when I get some extra time). This quilt took about 10 hours, and that is including all the froggin time :(. It still needs borders put on the quilt top.will have to see what I can come up with.

There are 54 9" blocks (twin size) - 27 of the preprinted design, and 27 of the mix matched blocks. It was all fun putting it to together. I had to draw out a layout of the quilt. The most frustrating part is I had to do a lot of froggin (ripping) out of the thread, cause most of the time I had the blocks in the wrong spots. (didn't help that I was really tired when I sewing some of together last night - cause I was tired - and that is where most of the mistakes happened - that'll teach me!) I think it took more time to frog, than it took to sew the final quilt top together.
