  1. What a charming little quilt. I don't think I've ever seen the 'Road to California' design before. You do beautiful work. :)

  2. Love that little quilt! I made a twin size with that block several years ago and did it in cheddar and white, not as pretty and colorful as yours.

  3. That is precious, Charlotte! I really like those colors.
    Was it a kit? I noticed on Connecting Threads they have quilt kits with everything you need except the backing, I've been thinking about trying one.

  4. Pretty quilt: interesting name.

  5. Pretty quilt: interesting name.

  6. Love it, have a lap quilt, tablecloth and small square that I put on table - that my mother made.
    If I lived near - you could teach me. Wonder if I could learn - I know not by myself and no one near my cottage does this hand work.

  7. Beautiful little quilt.. I've never heard of that one.. you are a very talented quilter.. mine would never turn out that good, I promise you that..you do great work..Susie

  8. I've missed visiting your postings. Feels good to be back in the world (although I've still healing to do).

    Lovely quilt, I can only imagine how much work you must put into them.

    You do all work by hand? I ask because I've read some send their quilts to quilters and I'm not quite sure what that means!

    I've always wanted to learn quilt but not sure when that will happen as I also want to learn to knit and I've yet to master crochet!

  9. This is so pretty and full of charm! blessings,Kathleen

  10. That is such a cute little quilt. I've never heard of that pattern before, though.
