Follow The Yellow Brick Road

The assignment for the latest Out of Line Quilters project?  Use a photo inspiration and any amount of yellow to make an art quilt.  Easy!  Maybe.  The idea for this quilt did come easy.  Being the Wizard of Oz fan that I am, when I heard yellow, I immediately thought of the yellow brick road.  The hard part came with how to put it all together and finish it.  As I said earlier this week, I'm not a big fan of fusible web, but with this quilt I really had no other choice than to do a lot of fusing.  Once the top was complete I had to decide on how to quilt it and that's where my real struggle came.  I had it stuck in my mind that this quilt needed pebble quilting, but I've never even tried to do pebble quilting and with a deadline looming, I had no time to learn or practice.  It was then that it hit me...I already had the stones in the quilt; what I needed was to quilt the paths taken!  Follow the Yellow Brick Road!
