Not All Who Wander Are Lost...

I really had fun yesterday doing the machine quilting to finish my "On The Road" quilt. I decided that each different section would have a different quilting pattern. I just let my muse lead me without any pre-planning.
Now the table quilt is finished for the Flying Cloud. It's small - measuring only 44 inches by 51 inches - small compared to what I've been making lately. I think it's really cheerful and whimsical.
This photo will give you a little closer look at the different patterns. (Remember, you can always click on the photo for a closer view.)

Handsome walked into the studio while I was working on the quilting and I told him I was having fun wandering around my quilt. He asked, "Are you lost?" In fine Tolkein form I replied, "No honey. Not all who wander are lost." He knew the reference and smiled as he walked away.

I love that quote from LOTR! Just had to comment, and your quilt is very pretty. I am finishing a quilt for my husband and I did the same thing, different motifs in each section. For me, it is my best effort so far, feathers, vines, swirls and now I am on the last border and don't know what to use. Keep quilting and posting, I enjoy your blog

This is so much fun. The fabric and the stitching just say travel with me in my Cottage Cloud and let us "wander" along the highways and byways of America. It must feel so good to have this finished and ready for some traveling. Beautiful Donna...

I feel transported by that quilt!
Sorry. But it really is a whimsically lovely delight. Your color combinations are especially clear, and I especially enjoy that checkerboard center. really a special gift for someone dear.

Hi Donna, I liked how your quilt turned out. It is fun to see all the different patterns. I enjoyed your previous post. Have a safe weekend and enjoy. I know we have a 100th birthday party to go to for my husband's aunt. Hopefully we will get to see a t-ball game if it isn't rained out. Take care. Your Missouri Friend.
