It's a flimsy!
I was inspired by a picture of a vintage quilt from the Jim Tharpe collection posted by Audrey of Quilty Folk.
I did not know the block name but figured out from the photo how to make the blocks.
Later 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 - the only difference between #1911 and #1912 is whether or not the block sashing is the same size as the quilt sashing.
Although I didn't use it I did find free block instructions at Quilter's Cache for a Country Road block if anyone is interested.
Nann of With Strings Attached had suggested to me at one time that a good name for one of my quilts might be Salmagundi. (The definition? a general mixture; a miscellaneous collection). And so Country Roads turned into Salmagundi Road as a name for my quilt.
I used a lot of chunk scraps and men's shirts from the thrift store to make the quilt in warm colors.
I first made 25 blocks with the intention of adding sashing wider than the 2.5 sashing within the block. I couldn't find enough of any fabric I had on hand to use for the sashing so made 11 more blocks with the intention to go without sashing between blocks. But then I decided I didn't like the blocks without sashing.
I finally decided on a narrow dark brown (Kona Coffee, I think) sashing. I didn't add it around the outside edges but I have enough Kona Coffee left for the binding.
Getting this sashed and to flimsy stage was my April One Monthly Goal (OMG). so I will link up to the Elm Street Quilts OMG finishing party at the end of the month.
