Old Tobacco Road--Completed

I finished my version of Bonnie Hunter's Old Tobacco Road, and I love it!

I wrote about beginning this quilt HERE, and I posted a progress report HERE.

I made a few changes to the design--using some constant fabrics, changing the border, etc.--but it is very much like the one I fell in love with on Bonnie's blog.

You may remember this photograph of a tobacco field from my earlier post. Bonnie had posted it with these quilt instructions, and I tried to pay close attention to it when choosing colors for my four-patch blocks.

Thanks to Bonnie Hunter for the free pattern. It can be found here: Old Tobacco Road. (Scroll all the way to the bottom of the list--it was a mystery quilt.)

This was a fun project--I had a great time making it.

I will be linking to Jo's Country Junction for her UFO Challenge and Fiber Tuesday 64 at The Quilting Room with Mel .


  1. Beautiful work! I like your constant-colors choices, and the string/piano-key border sets it off so nicely!

  2. Thank you, Susie--and thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I remember that mystery. I didn't ever finish mine, but now that I see how beautiful yours turned out, I wish I had stuck with it!

    1. Thanks, Carolyn. I wasn't quilting much when it came out originally, so I picked it up late, but I'm glad I did. Thanks for visiting!

  4. This is one of my most favorite quilts you have made. A true masterpiece, from idea to design to crafting!
