Blocks and Yellow Brick Road

I have been working on this yellow brick road quilt for a little while now. First I didn't like the way it looked so I took apart the blocks and put them back together. After that I put on a border that just didn't work, the colors were the same but they were lighter and it just didn't look right so I took off the borders and decided to make the piano key border and also put in a piece of sashing between the border and the quilt. I think I like the way it looks now and need to get a backing put together and then get it quilted maybe tomorrow.

In the meantime I decided to use up some of my scraps. I usually just hang onto them and then when I have enough I take them to a quilt show and say fill a baggie for $5
But after seeing so many other people using up some of their scraps by making different blocks I decided to make some wonky blocks. These are similar to log-cabin just cocked at an angle. I have them laying on my longarm right now and will put them on my design wall and fill in the open spaces with more strips.


  1. Both quilt tops are very nice and have fun with the quilting.

  2. Your Yellow Brick Road looks awesome! You know how to get it to look like you want.

  3. Love your Yellow brick road quilt!

    Happy sewing!

  4. Hi Judi, I love the scrappy blocks!

  5. I have a love for Yellow Brick Road because it was the 2nd quilt pattern I made, and still a classic the way you put together the colors!!! lovely and warm.
