This quilt is a recent finish...my interpretation of the vintage pattern, Road to Tennessee. The individual components are called Indian Hatchets I think. Putting them together this way is what I believe is called Road to Tennessee. The fabric is Modern Workshop by Oliver&S for Moda. It's bound in Kona Coffee.
Lookie there...my DIY quilt label! It washed up just fine.
This is a charm pack quilt...this size (45"x54") requires 3 charm packs. You could do a baby size 36x45)with 2 charm packs. Each hatchet is 5" unfinished. I think I used 2" squares to snowball the corners. I think bigger snowballs would have been even better.
I've heard many quilters say you have to throw an ugly fabric into the mix to make a great quilt. I have never prescribed to that, but this quilt has many fabrics that are...um..not my taste and it turned out fine. I love the colors. It's definitely better from a distance, but still something I would feel good about giving to someone I love. Do you like to throw some uglies into the mix when you're making a quilt?
