Another one of the patterns that is my go to pattern is the Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson Design.  I have made several of them.  Honestly I have lost count.  I have two hanging at the shop right now and many people don't even realize they are the same pattern.  It just looks different with different fabrics.

First is the Annabella Fabrics by Marcus in the Yellow Brick Road.  We used the Large Brown Floral as the border and binding. 
Every time  I look at it is see a different color stand out.
Each block fits perfectly.  My hardest decision is which block to put next. 
It is easy to quilt too.  I am always happy with a meander or simple quilting pattern.

I also have the Yellow Brick Road hanging at the shop from a Lecien fabric line called Christmas Fun by Lynette Anderson. 
 It is really cozy with the chocolate browns, a burgundy-ish red, and shades of cream. The quilt does not scream Christmas.  It has soothing tonal snowflakes, soft stars and little ginger breadmen.  I think it will look perfect in my family room next winter.
With the stars in the fabrics.  I quilted the quilt with wandering stars and loops. 
We have a few of these kits online.  There is also some new fabrics posted at the shop this week as well.  Like Aunt Grace- First Place and the beautiful Heart of the Prairie by Pam Buda.

Hope something inspires you,


  1. I love your yellow brick road quilts. That pattern would make a nice baby quilt is some soft fabrics!

  2. I so admire and appreciate your quilting close-ups so that we may enjoy seeing the fabrics and the stitching. I just indulged myself by ordering some of the Heart of the Prairie selections. I can't wait for them to arrive!

  3. I need to make a yellow brick road quilt soon. love yours!
