Roads of Rt 66 is what I decided to name this quilt. I was midway through the process, having cut all the blocks and laying them out to preview, when we did a road trip from TX to CA. When we got back this quilt reminded me so much of the road we traveled... mostly divided 2 lanes (grey), but in spots the interstate was red, I assume because the local clay soil, and often you would see the side roads, often the old Rt 66, and in areas just dirt roads. The fields lining the roads were golden dead grass, plowed fields, and in spots there was snow. I see all of these when I look at this quilt. (Don't worry if you don't. My husband was on the same trip and he thinks I am crazy)
I love the way it came together. I love the backing fabric which was from my stash. The two solids are kona cotton, Sand and Coal with pieces left from the block cutting. The binding is a small Andover print that is also used in the blocks. It measures 52 x62, but I have not yet washed it. (when washed it is 49 x 58 and all crinkly!)
I am sharing this for Sew & Tell Friday, be sure to check out everyone elses projects too!
