Bonnie's crossroads



Here is my red and green and neutral version of Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Crossroads. It was all-but-borders for quite a while. (I was all-but-thesis for quite a while in grad school too.)
Thanks, Bonnie, for this pattern. Her second mystery is on her site now. I hope to make that later this summer.
I used all scraps in the body of the quilt and used yardage from my shelves for the border. The scraps are from a lifetime of quilting and it is a delight to see them all together. Lots of shirt parts too. I even have a back already made for some unknown project that is the right size, so it is ready to go to the quilter.

I'm so enjoying seeing everyone's versions of this design. Yours is great! Don't you love real scrap quilts...ones that use scraps that hold real memories?

It never ceases to amaze me how a comglomeration of non-matching fabric can turn into something so clever and beautiful! Good job. Great quilt, and great use of stash! And entertaining for an almost sleepy person to look at all the fabric. I love it.
