Cobblestone Lane

Cobblestone blocks finished.....bound and labeled. 

    This is a small lap quilt, about 46 " by 55".  Just right for me!  Of course, it's way to hot to use it now.  Can't you tell by the drooping hydrangea leaves?   But it will be perfect for this fall....

The label turned out great.  I found a graphic of cobblestones and used it for the background.  I call it Cobblestone Lane.  In the College Park area of Orlando, where I grew up, there are still the old brick and stone side streets.  When I shared an apartment with Pat, we would ride bikes (for exercise!) down Elizabeth Street to the lake.  Bump, bump, bump all the way.

Quilting was just simple wavy lines in a grid on this one.  I used variegated  YLI thread for a change since I was not doing free motion quilting. 
Thanks to Wanda for sharing her original design for the cobblestones.   It's a great project to use those scraps.

Stay cool, and happy stitching.

The colors in this quilt just call to me. It has such a rich look to it.
