Cobblestone Lane Quilt

I've been working on this BOM quilt from This and That patterns (click on picture for a better view), WOW can you say a tremendous amount of piecing! This quilt not only has pieced sashing (which is not a problem) but it also has pieced setting triangles and corner triangles, neither of which I've ever done before. I must say the instructions are the best I've ever seen, the top went together without any problems, just a big time investment. I still need to trim the outside and add the brown inner border and then the red outer border. I love the look of this quilt.
Lula in her usual position.....napping.

Happy Quilting, until next time.

Wow! That's beautiful. I really like the piecing in the setting squares. It looks way better than just plain fabric like you usually see. I'm sure it's worth all the effort and it's bound to be a keeper.
