Paths and Stiles

The guild challenge quilt is nearly finished!  It is quilted and bound. I am embellishing it now.  Next is the label, which will be special.  Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, during the four-day weekend, I pieced this "Paths and Stiles" variation. (I say 'variation' because other blocks with this name have HSTs in the corners.)  The fabrics are homespun plaids and plain muslin.  The setting is from "Forty Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts" by Evelyn Sloppy.  I made 9" blocks for my version, which is about 73 x 82.  I have the backing pieced and the batting cut, ready to baste and quilt.  I'm pretty sure this will be donated to a local school fundraiser.

  1. It's fair to say that you achieved more than me this weekend. That's a lovely top you have there.

  2. Hi! Just found your blog and have been reading a few entries. Just to let you know, though, it is very difficult to read because of the background print. I find it easier to read blogs that have a white or solid color behind the print. Maybe it's just my "old" eyes. :)

    Keep up the interesting blog!
