This quilt was such a fun one for clearing out those bonus triangles I'd been saving. It allowed me to dig into my 3 1/2'' strip bun and pull all the rusty reds to browns for the bricks.
I had a lot of fun designing a strippy layout that was pieced on the diagonal. ((It's what I like to call a double whammy! And we had such fun doing it as a Mystery!))
On Dad's Bed!
And yes, I made the reindeer too, back in 1980-something.
He called the other day to ask what to do because the antlers were coming off. I had to explain what a hot glue gun was, and it is no wonder that after 30 years that glue was finally giving way. I told him to check with my sister in law to see if she could help with the re-gluing, but if not, just to leave them out until I make a visit in February and we could fix it together.
And I'm so happy that he couldn't wait to unwrap that package, didn't wait for Christmas, went right to it and that he loves it so much.
If you haven't made Old Tobacco Road yet, and you think you might want to, the free pattern is still under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog, down at the bottom where the old un-retired mysteries still live. Pinwheels, 4 patches, rectangles and large flying geese -- it's a fun one!

It's a morning for heading home and taking care of some stuff there! I'm packing up a few things from the cabin, but not too much -- I'll be back on Friday!
