Name: Road to Fortune
Design: a traditional paper pieced block, inspiration That Stash Bee February

Fabric: Scraps and stash fabrics for binding, borders and backing
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white on the diagonal
It's finished! I have been working on this one since last spring. I first made several blocks for That Stash Bee and thought, "hey, these are fun!" So I made more of them. 25 of them to be exact. I made one a week for awhile until I decided I was tired of them. Then I decided that I really need to just get this finished! Totally made from scraps, the Road to Fortune block is a paper pieced traditional block. I even used white scraps so the white in each block is also scrappy. The quilt is bound in one of my favourite binding fabrics, a purple tone on tone from RJR fabrics from forever ago.
I quilted it on the diagonal in aurifil 50 wt in white. Erg. Quilting on the diagonal. It is just awkward! But I love the look! The quilt is backed with some brightly coloured dragonfly print and a print from Ikea that I have had forever. I know I made our daughter a sun dress with it when she was about 6 or 7 and she is now 24! I added a bit of scrappy-ness in the borders too.
Isn't it fun to finish a quilt! Linking up with Amanda Jean for finish it up Friday.
