The Road Less Traveled... Row 5

About a dozen like-minded quilters meet at the Temecula Quilt Company every Monday to work on The Road Less Traveled quilt - a Lori Smith design. It is a *row* quilt of seven rows of various sized blocks from 5 1/4 to 8 3/4 inches square, with horizontal sashing separating the rows. This is my first block in Row 5. The center didn't meet up as well as I'd like, so a little un-stitch and re-do will be necessary. lol.
Civil War repro fabrics from several different lines seem to be playing well together, so I will continue mixing them. I'm loving these colors and fabrics!
All for now... back to sewing;-)... thank you for stopping by,
PS: The blocks in this row finish at 7.5 inches. It feels really strange to make such big blocks!

You really did nice piecing. I would be proud to have a middle like you do, I can´t believe you´re not satisfied with it. You chose nice colours!

I really like the fabrics you chose. The colors look so good together! This will be a very pretty quilt with the nice piecing you've done. I've only made one of Lori Smith's patterns but everyone liked it.

Cyn....leave it! It's great as it is. Don't forget: it's one of a zillion busy blocks. Really. It's good!
