Old Tobbaco Road







Old Tobacco Road is quilted. YEAH!!!!
I quilted it lengthwise using a pano called Feather Feather. I used gold thread and left over bobbins that kind of match. Now I need to figure out what fabric to use for the binding. I have a medium brown. Looked ulck. Thinking about one of the brick fabrics. Will have to see how much I have of what. I have plenty of the boarder fabric left, I could use that, if I have to.
Here are pictures of the front and a close up and the back. I found the backing a few years ago on a sale table. It makes me think of tobacco barns, so was perfect for this quilt. I still have 1 2/3 yrs left for the stash.
Two Quilts down and 3 to go for myself. I am getting there.

I LOVE your quilt! Great job! You could also use left over brick fabrics for the binding and make it a scrappy binding. A little more work, but it would really pull the bricks to the outside.

It's a lovely quilt. I'd probably bind it one of the bright brick colours, like the green :)
