I finished the last 12 of 25 blocks for a quilt I'm now calling Salmagundi Road.
The inspiration for this quilt came from a photo of a vintage quilt in the Jim Tharpe collection that Audrey of Quilty Folk posted.
Next step is sashing. I'm not sure I have enough of the fabric I have in mind so not sure if I'll use several different ones or what. I'll probably make the sashing smaller than what is shown in the inspiration photo.
I like vintage quilts so made a block while I was inspired. I didn't need instructions. I just figured it out but asked if anyone knew the block name when I posted a pic of the first blocks I made.
Dot (aka abelian who is a no-reply blogger so I couldn't say thanks) left me a comment saying the block name according to Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia #1911 is Buffalo Ridge by Nancy Cabot or Grandmother's Fancy. #1912 is Buffalo Ridge or Country Roads. I think the only difference between #1911 and #1912 is the whether or not the block sashing is the same size as the quilt sashing. Anyway...after I had a name I found the Country Roads pattern at Quilter's Cache if you want to make your own
I was originally calling this quilt Blazin' Hot because those words appeared in the fabric in one of the blocks I made earlier and I had no better name at that time.
Then Nann of With Strings Attached commented on another one of my wild quilts that Gallimaufry or Salmagundi would be a good name for one of my quilts. Ok, Nann...
Salmagundi Road it is! You will see my Gallimaufry blocks in a couple of days.
