"Stopped Me in my Tracks!"

Stitched with L-O-V-E and the fruits of yesterday's labor, my completed...


"Stopped Me in my Tracks" quilt.



I loved it the first time I laid eyes on the original and I love it even more now.


My original inspiration.
For those of you who missed the original posts about my 'love affair' with the quilt that literally 'stopped me in my tracks', click HERE for the link to the blog post which contains the downloadable, printable PDF file and instructions as to how I made this quilt.



Enjoy!


Happy stitching!

It turned out beautifully. I have my fabric for it, but just haven't had the time just yet.

I am almost done with my top. Just need to do the last sashing row and then quilt it. I'm using flannel for my batting so it can be my summer quilt.
Thanks for the quilt a long.

I have to tell you I fell in love with your quilt and joined in the sew along. Even my friend in Germany is making one. I just finished my top and hope to quilt it soon. It will be my summer quilt. In Texas we don't need quilts in the summer but I had to do it. I'm using flannel as my batting.
Mine is yellow and white too. But I goofed and made my 9 patches reverse of yours so mine will be call And The Path Goes On.
How can I post of photo when it's finished?
Thanks for sharing
