Patriotic YBR WIP Quilt


I have been wanting to do a Patriotic quilt, so I found my Yellow Brick Road pattern, and went away at it!

I believe it was Thursday night I cut up the pieces, and since I used more fat quarters than it called for, I had to select the different fabrics to work with. So I had enough to make 2 quilts.

Well last night I took a break from SBG, and got out the sewing machine and put it on the kitchen table, and went at it!

I did have a mishap with the quilt and it well, I had to cut some of the outer blocks on the length side to accommodate.

I still need to buy some border fabric and also the binding material. I already have the backing material. The size of the quilt will be appropriate for the back of a recliner.
Thanks to DH, Brian, for holding up the quilt so I could snap this picture.. aren't they great for something! Oh yeah, and he didn't even complain. YEA! I think that deserves for me to make him some lunch.. LOL Ack... just looked out the window, and I see its snowing.
