Yellow Brick Road Finish

Yellow Brick RoadThis is a quilt with quite a past and maybe that is why I forgot to write about it.

It started here with my floor tiles. Amazing what a sleepless night may bring. 2 Floor

Here is the pattern shown in fabric

The next thing I post is my sad sad tale of ripping out all my beautiful quilting here. Yellow Brick Road

From the time I ripped out the stitches above I moved from my domestic machine to a long arm. This is the first quilt I did on my long arm. I tried all kinds of patterns. Yellow Brick Road Yellow Brick Road Yellow Brick Road Yellow Brick Road Yellow Brick Road 3-DSCN5085

There is quite the learning curve and this took me forever.

Here is the back, I used leftover pieces to make it large enough. Yellow Brick RoadThis was planned as a gift, but I have to keep it, to remember where I started. It now hangs in the room with my long arm. Finished it is 58 x 81.

Pleased on the Journey, Jackie

      Thank you Sarah for stopping by. I had quite fun learning my new long arm with it, but it sure was a long project to start with!

    Oh yes! I do remember when you started this and look how far you’ve come with your quilting! Beautiful

      Let’s just say it was an ambitious project to learn a new machine. It was quite the learning curve, but no regrets.

    So beautiful. I can see why you wanted to unpick it. The blending threads make a big difference. I’m glad you are keeping it. I still have the first thing I ever quilted by machine, and I love to make comparisons.

    • Jackie

      Thank you Jasmine. It was a real pain to pick out, but well worth it.

    I went back and read your previous story…..and am going to follow your lead and do a quilting project like this….as I think it would really build my confidence. THANKS for sharing the process, mistakes and successful ending.

    • Jackie

      Thanks Val,
      This quilt has quite the history. If I had quilted it differently the first time, I never would have had it to play with my new long arm and it did provide a great base for many designs.
