FO: Crosstown traffic

When I was up at Mom’s, quilting Calico Garden, Mom also gave me a quilted Crosstown Traffic to take home.  She’d done all her fancy needlework, and it just needed to be bound.

As you may recall, it was a Leader Ender project made entirely of scraps. And I think the end result is pretty cool. It’s a nice size too… 63″ x 76″!

With all the scraps, there’s lot of fun little treasures hiding in the fabrics. And check out Mom’s cool quilting

She did a gorgeous design on the borders, though it gets lots in the pattern, sadly.

The whole thing is backed with another wonderful neutral fabric…

This was definitely a fun pattern. And one that will look completely different with different fabric. I will definitely make this pattern again!

    What a wonderful quilt! I love scrappy quilts so, of course, I love it. The design is great and your Mom’s quilting is fantastic. I love how she quilted the blocks. The backing fabric is pretty great.
