Body Finished


The body of Tobacco Road is finished. I will do borders next. Bonnie has not posted her ideas on the borders. I have an idea but will wait to see what Bonnie has done. I am thinking of doing some wonky letters but time will tell.
A really fun quilt to make. Time consuming but fun. I think I would have stayed with the darker browns for the brick part of the quilt but than again the lighter browns do add some variety. I don't have enough room to lay out as Bonnie suggested so I had to just sew and hope a got things mixed up enough. I think I succeeded.
Well time to get ready for the night news. Dot

This feels luxurious to me. The browns you chose have a sense of Ultrasuede cloth. You've created something here. Really!

This looks wonderful! the colours look great. What a nuisance that you only have enough gold for half the border. Isn't that always the way?

It looks wonderful and I LOVE the way those pinwheels just sparkle and add life to the body. Well done, Dot!
