A Quilt I Just Have to Make

I love all things Carrie Nelson and have several of her quilts on my list to make. So far, I've made two:
I've made 2 Hobo Quilts - the original name of the pattern is Pick and Choose:


And Ginger Belle:


Last year she became a part of the Moda family and she writes the Moda Cutting Table Blog, which I follow. I saw this quilt there the other day on THIS post she wrote and although this isn't one of her designs, I knew I had to make it. It's called Old Dirt Road, by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings, and it called my name...loudly!

 I recently had a birthday which explains why I relate to the 'Old' part, and well, you all know how strongly I identify with dirt roads!

Then add the fact that I love the pattern and my box of brown fabrics will not close, although I also have this fat quarter pack that I'm considering using:


Then again, it wouldn't resemble much of a dirt road if I used it and I've got a really good variety of browns from which to chose:


 Maybe I'll just make 2. :) Once in a while a pattern comes along that just makes you push everything else to the side and say, "I must make you NOW".

I think this is it!

Yep, "Old Dirt Road" sums me up pretty good and it just might be my perfect quilt.

All three are gorgeous quilt. Go out onto the dirt road. I'm sure you will love the journey. I too have an "all" brown quilt that is calling my name. For now, it is still on the to-do list. Enjoy! ;^)

Love the name, "Old Dirt Road" and it's perfect for the quilt design. Open up your box of brown fabric and start cutting.

Think that one is JUST RIGHT!! Love it and love the fact that it's brown. All around perfect.

I saw that quilt on Carrie's post too and loved it! So many quilters don't like brown but I do. Have fun!

Shelly said...

Yes, I believe you do need a quilt called Old Dirt Road! I love that Hobo quilt -- it's gorgeous!

This is "Your" quilt absolutely. So nice of them to name it after your blog. I love your Hobo quilt pictured first. That would use up a lot of my scraps.

Oh, I like the colors of first quilt shared on this post. You and I are on the same sheet of music when it comes to fabric colors. The stack of FQ's is yummy but so are your browns. Hard decision, I agree make two ! :-)

Staci said...

That's GREAT! I am sure this pattern is meant for you!

Beautiful from one ole dirt road to another! Happy belated birthday dear friend!

The Pick and Choose pattern is a variation of the Buckeye Beauty blocks I've been working on. Make all the same blocks, change the orientation, add lots of color -- yep, same block. I love the colors in the quilt in your photo. Those fat quarter fabrics/colors are beautiful.
