Country Roads Finish!

The link up has started for the Country Roads quilts so I had to hurry up and finish it.
This is the latest mystery quilt along project from Lori at Humble Quilts
I used the red and teal fabric that was leftover from my most recent Scrap Squad quilt because it was laying around my sewing room. The hardest part of making this quilt was picking the grey fabric for the setting squares. Having too many choices often makes the decision making process much lengthier.
I machine quilted this one in straight lines using my hera marker and walking foot. Quick and easy.
This quilt is sitting in the middle of my table with my favourite candle. 
Maybe I should call it "Peaceful Country Roads".
Click here to go to the link up party and see over 30 finished Country Roads. Thanks again Lori for another fun quilt along!

I love how you set the reds differently - what a different look to it. And the grey really works well - well done.

It may have been hard Kathy, but that grey was the perfect choice! I love the way your straight line quilting has made cross country roads in the setting squares too!

I love the gray fabric with your blocks! Nice work!!

Karen said...

Your quilt looks oh so different with a color combo different than what I have been seeing. Nice that you could use up scraps to make the little blocks.

Mary said...

Good Job! I am hand quilting mine so it might be awhile. I'm out of practice,
