Here is the inspiration for my quiltalong. poor little rag tag quilt looks like it has been loved and used for many years.
This quilt reminds me of a log cabin and it is some sort of variation. I couldn't find it in Barbara Brackman's book, but I liked that it was a bit unusual and it took me a little bit to figure out how it was constructed.
I'm calling ours Mountain Trail. If you recall my hubby and I climbed South Sisters in August. Toward the summit it was all red rock, hence, the red "steps" is the trail to the top.
You'll need a variety of lights and darks cut into 1 1/4" strips. We will be using lengths from 1 1/4" to 4 1/4".
For the red, a fat quarter or a little less will be plenty.We will wait to cut this red. I opted not to put in any other red strips in my quilt.
My quilt will finish (I'm hand sewing the binding down tonight) approx 23"x22'. My EQ drawing has a size of 18"x25". Either way we will make 20 blocks and you can decide on an arrangement.
Step one will be on Wednesday as it shouldn't take too much to get your fabric ready.
I'm excited for you to see my quilt! I love it and hope you will join in and make one too!!
