Well, I am sure most of you have heard about Bonnie from Quiltville's "Old Tobacco Roads" mystery quilt. I was watching for each clue, trying to resist making this one...I have made each of her previous mystery quilts. Well, she really hooked me when I saw the wonderful flying geese border she made. So I started in on step one, which was a LOT of four patches! I was using pink, cream and browns, as I have always wanted to make a quilt in these colors. I made lots and lots...then got to playing with the setting! I did not have all the half square triangles she already had ready to use up, and sooo..I continued to work with what I would do! Would I make all those 1/2 square triangles, then make them into pinwheels? Apparently not! Below is the center of my own quilt..."Tobacco Rose"! This is the center, almost put together, then I will work on those fun flying geese borders. It is put together in much the same fashion as Bonnie's with diagonal rows. I know Bonnie encourages our own ideas and patterns, and this was my setting as I was playing with my squares. Can't wait to work on those borders!! Thank you to Bonnie for the inspiration...fun!!
Hope each of you has a most wonderful day...I am off to clean and cook dinner.
