Featured Quilt of the Week ~ 2

It is "Featured Quilt of the Week" time!!  This is where you can post a quilt on your blog for the past.  It could be from a few months ago to several years ago that you would like to show.  When you post on your blog be sure to link back to my blog (this blog post) so that everyone can look over the quilts and blog hop!  The linky thing will be at the bottom of this post!

Here is my quilt!  It is called "Road to Dixie"  This is a quilt that I made years ago.  Not sure how long, I would look in my books that I keep to be sure but I'm guessing 8-10 years ago!  
I got this pattern out of a quilt magazine and noticed a while back that the pattern had been republished in a quilt magazine.  I don't remember if it was the same one or not.  Anyway, looking at this photo I realize that I must have lost my mind!  Look how wide I made those borders!  LOL!  Now here is a little funny.....this is STILL just a quilt top!  Yep!  It is still in the pile to be quilted.

I remember that I cut this out during the night after Richard would go to work.  It took me a couple of nights to cut it out and a couple more to piece it together.  If I remember correctly it only took me about a week to finish this top.  

I had lots of fun piecing this top.  Seeing it again really makes me want to dig it out and quilt it!  Maybe I will get to it real soon.  

Come on and join in!  I'm going to try to do this so that everyone can link up on Thursday or Friday at the latest.  Check back often for added blog posts and see all of the quilts!

It is a pretty quilt, Kristie! I've made some of those wide borders in the past--my reasoning was that I wanted a bigger quilt, but was tired of piecing it. : )
