Country Roads Part 3 Finale

Here is my Country Roads little quilt finished.  I love it and the cheddar/gold is perfect for fall here in Central Oregon.
You ready to finish yours?
From your gold fat quarter cut four (4) 5 1/2" squares. Cut two (2) 4 1/2" squares and cut each once on the diagonal  for 4 half square triangles. These are the four corners of your quilt. 
For the setting triangles cut two (2) 8 1/2" squares, then cut each one  twice on the diagonal for 8 total quarter square triangles.
Lay them out like the photo.


Sew them in rows, as shown. I like to sew my side triangles before sewing the corners. When assembled, hang up and admire your work!
Here was my inspiration quilt, (seen on ebay)
 Of course if you make it larger you have more opportunities to mix it up.
Here's the same block in a controlled setting. Barbara Brackman's book calls it Country Lane and I thought it suited it well. (even though I ended up changing the name of my quiltalong)
Instead of a red border I opted to bind it in red. 
 Instead of the dreaded "Quilt as Desired" I thought I'd show you what I chose to do. And no, this isn't the big stitch! lol


My label still says Country Lane but I am going to change it. I hope you enjoyed sewing along and I hope you love your little creation!!

More of my France trip, including the quilt show, on Wednesday!
Happy Monday!

  7. Oh, Lori, this is the dearest little quilt! I didn't quilt along from the beginning but I will have to choose fabrics and make this quilt. I like how you showed the inspiration for the quilt, too. (I just started a "Quilty Inspiration" link-up and this post would fit nicely.) Thanks for sharing your skills with us.

  20. I sort of love cheddar orange. Isn't it just so vibrant? In it's own way? Nice quilt - I'm glad to have found you from Nancy's Quilty Inspiration.
