Here is a close up of the quilting and pretty plaid fabrics. All this plaid makes me want to sew plaids, plaids, plaids!!
When I was little, I lived in Colorado, and was born there in the mountains. One trip I remember very well was a trip to Durango, Colorado, to ride the Narrow Gauge Railroad through the mountains to Silverton. It was the old train back then, before the new and improved version. Oh what a treat it was to me, to see those breathtaking mountains of home. Those mountains never fail to awe me, and seem to envelope me in a big hug when I get to go home. These blocks remind me of the old railroad tracks...so the name of this quilt is Narrow Gauge through the Rockies.
It is now short work of making the rest of the blocks, and putting it all together with a piano key scrappy plaid border. I have truly loved making this quilt!!
