I've Reached the End of the Road to Lampasas


Road to Lampasas
75 x 90
(Too long for the clothesline this way- I'll have to turn it sideways)




...and I used mostly 30's reproduction fabrics. (Sometimes other fabrics creep over into my 30s bin).


I used a scrappy binding. 


I machine quilted it on my plain Jane Janome (DSM) with some four petaled flowers. 


The quilt ended up with some nice texture...wrinkly, soft, cuddly. 


The back is a purple gingham sheet from the thrift store. 


This was also a Q2 goal (#14) for the 2015 Finish Along.

And at the end of the month I'll link up with Julie's Binding Blitz.

This quilt just shouts springtime. Love, love the gingham backing, too.

Wonderful! Be sure to show Judy L. how her pattern turned out. The 30's fabrics (and friends) just shine. And thanks for the quilting closeups.

Such a beautiful quilt - it does look very "vintagey" with the pretty 30's repro fabrics in these blocks!
