I Finished the Trail

 At the end of September
Lori, at Humble Quilts,
began a quilt along
with a quilt she was calling Mountain Trails.

I'm a slow hiker, I know.
But I've finished one of the quilts that
I had started.

I challenged myself to a "scrap attack" and
 to use only the fabrics
that were in my scrap bag and here's
one of the quilts. 
 21.5" x 22.5"
"Follow the Cheez-It Trail"

 Remember I had help
choosing just the right fabrics.

With the trail done in a cheddar color,
and the shape a small square,

all I could see were Cheez-It crackers
making a trail.

I found a great fabric in my stash
to use on the back.
Can you tell how old this fabric is?

Good Grief,
it's 20 years old already.
Time to use some it, 
don't you think!

 Other quilters who are faster
hikers than I am,
have posted their quilts here.

I have one more quilt partly sewn.
I'll let you know when I finally get to 
the end of that trail.

But until then,
"Happy Trails to you
'till we meet again."
Until Next Time-

  5. That's wonderful! Do I recognize some of those blues? Are some of them from our exchange many moons ago?

  8. I want to play in your scrap bag. Some good fabrics came out of it.
    Oh, how I loved to watch Roy & Dale Evans. It would be a tame and probably considered boring show by today's standards.
