"Campaign Trail" finished!


I named my version of Old Tobacco Road <http://quiltville.com/oldtobaccoroad1.shtml> "Campaign Trail" because that's the season we're in....and a long and scrappy trail it's been. I must admit that I wasn't wild about this pattern while I was slogging along with all those little HSTs for the pinwheels. I had to chart out all rows in the center to keep the assembly straight. By the time I got the center together I wasn't going to do those big Flying Geese for the border. But I did . . . and it all came together! Now I'm smiling....and I will be happy to move onto another project.

  3. Oh, very nice. I know what you mean. It seems like it is never going to go together but it does and it is very neat when finished. I am even considering another. Am I crazy? Enjoy.

  5. A wonderful, personalized name! And ... it just keeps getting scrappier. I will be glad when the election is over ... mentally exhausting and all those ads!

  10. "A long and scrappy trail" for sure - great name for your OTR! Good job -- I sat this one out, for now anyway to try to catch up on a few ufo's.
