I sooo love this pattern!  Here are two quilts I made awhile ago using the Yellow Brick Road pattern.  I really like how they turned out.





and the back of that one:


I made another one with the same pattern but I cannot find my photos of it right now...

Those are fantastic.  The colors are really well coordinated and that pattern is very nice looking.  It looks like it would be really cool in scraps too.

Pretty!  I especially love the first one.  The borders work really well.

I always wondered if it was worth it to buy the patters for these two quilts - Yellow Brick Road and Turning Twenty.  I'm thinking it is....  I'm putting both one my wish list!

Both of your quilts came out great, klum78.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

klum78, did you machine quilt this?  From a distance the texture of the quilting is beautiful.  Did you wash it before you took the picture?  I can't tell.    I would love to see a closeup of the quilting!

Thanks for all the comments everyone!  Grin

I did machine quilt these myself on my MIL ancient Kenmore.  And they had both been washed in the photos.  I don't prewash my quilt fabric or batting so that I can get that puffy look.   I wish I could show a close up of the stitching but I don't have any photos of it and they have both been given away.  I always forget to take a close up of my stitching.  It's just free motion stitching like all of my other quilts.
