Country Roads Quilt Top

This is a quilt top that I put together from a kit with panel of houses and barns. The applique was done on the machine and had to be done as I put the rows and borders together since it overlapped the borders. It adds a "little something" to the quilt. The quilt is called "Country Roads" and is from Coach House Designs.

It's a dreary day outside---rain showers (glad for the rain because we really need it), so I'm spending the afternoon looking through pattern books that I haven't looked at for awhile trying to find somethng new to do. Going to a quilt retreat soon and can't decide just what to take! Of course, I will do several Yellow Brick Roads tops for Project Linus. Then I will probably finish embroidery on several flower blocks left and finish the Magnolia quilt by sewing the blocks together. And there is always something to crochet. I'm sure I can find lots to ways to keep busy!!!

Looking forward to this trip a lot----I'll be hobbling around on my cane, because my knee is acting up and the shot the doctor gave to help it hindered rather than helped and I have had trouble ever since he administered it. Have to take it slow! Learning to slow down-------------not an easy thing to do!!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

What a sweet little quilt! It's hard to slow down, but sometimes it really does make life more enjoyable! :0)

That's a darling quilt! And I'm sure you won't have any trouble finding something to take, enjoy yourself! Sorry to hear about your knee - was it a cortisone shot? *shudder*

So glad you are able to make it to your retreat. Can't wait to see all the wonderful tops you finish while there.
