Road Home Row Along Quilt Show N Tell Day

It's been an amazing journey to visit all the different "homes" of various bloggers.
Thank you to Marian from Seams To Be Sew for gathering us all together!
Today is Show n Tell day of a few quilters who made their rows into a quilt.
I made a quilt with just four of my favorites. It was so hard to pick just four!

Since I'm no world traveler and haven't been to hardly any of those places featured,
I chose four rows that made me smile and were mostly applique, which I love to do.

Row 1: Road Home To Vegas is my row. I love that town!
You can find this row at my pattern store on Craftsy.

Row 2: Road Home to Heber Valley, Utah, on the Heber Creeper. 
I've actually seen this train, which isn't really red, but doesn't it look great in that color!
You can find this row over at Deonn's blog, Quiltscapes.

Row 3: Road Home to Northern Rivers Region, NSW, Australia.
I've never been to Australia, but it looks just like the beaches I enjoy when I visit California.
It looks so peaceful!
You can find this row by Sue Griffith who posted on my blog when she shared the row, HERE.

Row 4: The Road Home to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
I have to admit I've never been to see this amazing balloon show, but I need to!
The pictures I've seen of all the balloons are just gorgeous.
You can find this row by Daryl of Patchouli Moon HERE.

The beautiful quilting on my Road Home quilt was done by Quilted Works
I was so happy with it!

Great job on your rows, thanks!

Annie said...

Such a great memory quilt. I love the side edges with their look of film strip. It gives the rows a feeling of photos that were taken. You may not travel a lot but I'm sure you were on a wonderful fabric and stitching trip while making this quilt.

Quilting Tangent said...

I really like your quilt. The borders make it look like the old filmstrips from my early teaching career. Great choices of rows to put together, too. I especially like the fabric choices for the balloons, and the red train DOES look grand!
