Oddly enough, this was the first quilt I ever made where I followed a pattern that wasn't of my own design. The pattern is called Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson's Designs. Its a pretty common pattern these days, especially for new quilters. I think the reason I struggled with it at the time was that I wasn't very confident in my cutting and/or piecing skills and I was very worried that the blocks wouldn't come together properly in the end. Thankfully it did. :-)
So here's the fabric that I purchased for the quilt all laid out on the floor. Most people I showed the fabric to didn't like the combinations, but somehow in my head, I could see the finished product and knew they would all work together. I still have pieces of the dark purple yardage on the bottom as well as bits of the seashell yardage.
The border was quilted in straight lines to offset the curved quilting throughout the main portion of the quilt.
This one shows the straight-line quilting in the border. I continued the straight lines right to the corner so the very corners of the quilt has little 2" boxes.
