Not a UFO any longer!

This quilt was started in June, 2014 as a "yellow" project for Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  It has been hanging around as a top in my workroom for a long time -- other things kept taking precedence.  Today it finally graduated to stitch-the-binding-to-the-back status!

I used the traditional Road to California block, and because of all the yellows, I'm naming it Gold Rush.  Gold mining is one of the key elements of our local history here in Big Bear.

Done just in time to add to my October Tally :)

This is a very striking quilt, Jeanne. The colors and layout give a vintage feel to the quilt. The pattern, of course, calls attention, especially with the narrow sashing and cornerstones, and the colors are fabulous. From the photo I can't tell if the background colors are browns, dark tans, army greens, or maybe a combination. It looks like my kind of quilt.

I often dismiss patterns like these because in my mind I can't imagine how they will look when set together. Now I want to make this quilt!
