This winter, I traveled to Virginia and–naturally–popped into a little quilt store in the charming town of Warrenton, Kelly Ann’s Quilting. This cute shop displayed a quilt kit I just couldn’t resist. It’s by the “Schnibbles” quilt designer, Carrie L. Nelson, of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. She’s brilliant with charm squares and layer cakes (5-inch and 10-inch square fabric packs). This pattern’s called Reveille, French for “wake up!” I decided to name mine “All Roads Lead to Home,” which I derived from the arrows embedded around the 9-patches. Right now, my life is centered around home (in my work, too – at my home office); someday, I hope my children will be glad to “come home” – even when they’re older. This will probably decorate their bedroom wall, if I can find space!
I think the 1930s reproduction fabrics look pretty darn cute. It’s all ready to be quilted now, layered up as you can see above. How do you think I should quilt it? Straight lines? Meandering? Shapes? Which? Where? Please comment with your ideas!
