MY Yellow Brick Road

My family bought me 18 hand-dyed FQ's from Allison's shop about 3 Christmases ago.  I knew I could do a Yellow Brick Road and use all of the FQ's in the quilt top, and that I'd be keeping this one for myself.  It was ready for quilting last year, but then when I knew buying a LA was on the horizon, I wanted to wait to quilt this one. 

I quilted it with meandering magic feathers (Suzanne Earley), and was just so pleased to see it come together.  I will definitely do this quilting pattern again and again.  A little labour intensive, but I love the effect. 

I used a blue flannel backing, Legacy wool batting, wonderfil threads.  63"x72", it was 73" before quilting, so lost an inch in the quilting.

The first picture is washed and bound, and the others are before washing.

and the back...I kept giggling in glee as I quilted my LA!!

My youngest asked who this quilt was for...I said it's for me, it's my TV quilt, and she asked if it could be hers too, so I'm not the only one who likes this.  Good thing it's big enough for both of us. 


  1. Michelle, this is beautiful, perhaps we can convince you to do something like this for Jack's big boy bed when he moves out of the toddler one!

  2. Great job Michelle - love those funky feathers. Thanks for a lovely visit the other morning. Great to see your set up and happy to hear you're enjoy the new machine.

  3. Wonderful colours on this one!
