This is my version of the mystery quilt OLD TOBACCO ROAD from Quiltville. My layout is totally different from the pattern, but I really like the way it turned out. I also went totally scrappy in every aspect. My goal must be reached of using up tons of odd scraps. I added a red border around it (hubby took the camera with him so I can not download the picture with the border on it).
My original plan was to use this with another quilt top, but I have been out voted by my hubby, my quilting friend Maureen and my mom and dad. LOL. Which is fine, I just now have one other unfinished quilt project. One more back to make, me oh my, I had best get busy.
I started a "house" quilt block from the Quiltville site. It is another fabulous way to use up all my odd scraps. I am really enjoying these blocks, they go together so quickly and without a lot of seams to match. These blocks will make a great backing for one of the quilts. LOL. I do not believe I will show the finished back to anyone around me until it is quilted! LOL
