Oooh, I just love those fabrics! I made my youngest granddaughter a quilt using brown, pink and green and loved how it turned out. So, are you going with the Jacob's Ladder after all?


Your piles of fabric look delicious. I no longer have a subscription to the magazine so I don't know what the four patch designs look like that they show. I like that you have chosen to do your own.

Having done some Buckeye Beauties lately, loving 4-patches,Jacobs's Ladder, I love Bonnie Hunter's book Scraps & Shirttails II. I am finishing up my last two quilts and moving on to Tumalo Trail. Just got to have it! Your colors are lovely!

Love your fabrics and the block possibilities are delightful. Cheers for making this quilt your own in every way: fabrics, setting, borders or not, size, and quilting. How perfect is that?

Thanks for the eye candy in all of those yummy links, too. They will take some time for exploration.

This looks like fun! I am going to do it too I think but I will wait until I have a couple more UFO's finished. The quilts look awesome so far. have a lot of fun on this one!

Your fabric will make such a pretty quilt that's perfect for Spring (no matter what that groundhog said this week!)


I saw a Road to California back in 2006, in pink, green and brown, and in different textures, and I have wanted to do one ever since!

Love the fabrics you have chosen and looking forward to watching your progress .

I have always like seeing Arkansas Crossroad blocks. I am probably not participating this time around, but I will be really enjoying seeing the progress of everyone else. I really appreciate the tip I just picked up out of your post. "If you cut your fabrics with each pairing right sides together you are all set to sew and sub cut." I had never thought about doing RST when piling the fabric, but that makes so much sense now that I think about it. Definitely going to try that on my next strip set quilt project.


Soft and pretty colors, Nicole! I like your idea. I fell for Edyta's quilt design but her pieces were too tiny for me. I'm going to use all those 1.5" strips and squares I've been saving for so long, and then cut up more scraps. It's a fun thing, this quiltalong idea.
