Mini ๐Ÿš Brick ๐Ÿš Road Table Runner


Quilt Info:
Maker: Nancy of Grace and Peace Quilting
Pattern: Mini Brick Road by Atkinson Designs
Fabrics: Batik charm squares from my Quilting Cousin, Sue
Size: 12" X 52"
Batting: Quilters Dream Batting--Poly
Thread: Glide--Lavender
Quilting: Pyrex Stems
Interesting Info: Terry Atkinson, of Atkinson Designs, recently had an online party to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her wildly popular Yellow Brick Road quilt pattern! As part of the 20th anniversary celebration, Terry introduced this mini version of the YBR quilt pattern, made from charm squares!!! 

This pattern calls for 30 charm squares. I made mine longer and used 40 batik charm squares that were gifted to me from my Quilting Cousin, Sue!

I love this quilting design, Pyrex Stems!





Have you made a Yellow Brick Road (YBR) quilt or two, or twenty?!! I've made quite a few over the years. 
   
This was a "DrEAMi"--Drop Everything And Make It, project for me. Who could resist, after watching the YBR 20th anniversary party!
   
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  2. Very cute! Can you believe it has been twenty years?! I can't believe 1990 was thirty years ago either. HA!

  3. YRB in batiks? Beautiful!! I can't tell you how many of those quilts I've made over the years. It was my Go To quilt pattern before I was introduced to the Wonky 9-Patch.

  6. It always makes me smile when I see you have had a chance to quilt something of your own. I have never made a YBR, it makes a very pretty runner.

  8. What a pretty table runner, with all those bright, happy colors! I love it, and I'm sure you must as well. It looks great on your patio table! I've never made a Yellow Brick Road quilt (gasp); I apparently have been living under a rock, since I hadn't even heard of them until I saw her anniversary posts.

  12. I've never made a YBR quilt - there's only so much time and there are SO many patterns to try! Love your batik version, and I see why you love that quilting pattern so much!

  13. I was just on Terry's web site recently and I didn't notice that pattern. Yours looks fabulous. And, don't you just love how fast you can make and quilt a table runner? I made a YBR years ago and sent it half way across the country to have it quilted. I wonder if it is time to make another one?

  15. I still love simple designs. They are so effective. Lovely fabrics in this one.

  16. I'm with Karen (above) on this one! Simple designs let the fabrics shine and, as with this finish, allow the quilting to come to the foreground. Well done!

    I am very fond of batiks

  18. 20 years wow. I have one of her books and a couple of her single patterns, just great stuff. Yellow brick road is not one of them however. I love your runner (and the design) and the backing is terrific. Thank you so much for linking up with DrEAMi because your project is most definitely a quintessential one!

  19. What a fun, colorful project. You had me at Pyrex Stems. I love pyrex, but had forgotten about that pattern, so I had to look it up, and of course, went down another rabbit hole before coming back here again. Such a neat idea for a quilt pattern! :)

  20. Gorgeous and colorful! I see you have Freddie. That's the one I debated getting, but settled for the Lenni and am happy to have it.
