This is the Road to Brenam quilt we’ll do as the next Quilt Along. It will begin on Monday, August 12.
Note: If links are not in color and underlined, they are not active yet. Instructions will be posted Monday, Thursday and Saturday and may be found on the blog. It may take a day or two to get the links copied here so if you want the newest instructions, check on the blog.
The finished size of the quilt will be 96″ x 96″.
Within the next week I will post fabric requirements and additional drawings showing the quilt in other colors.
Brenham is located in central east Texas . . about 1-1/2 hours from Houston (though I think it takes that long just to get out of Houston!) and, according to the 2010 census, has a population of about 16,000. A bit more about Brenham, Texas . . if you want to know more, you can visit the Brenham/Washington County website.
- Blue Bell Ice Cream’s main location is in Brenham . . need I say more?
- The Antique Rose Emporium is also located in Brenham.
- There are several wineries located in Brenham. Looks like an excuse for me to go wine shopping.
- Brenham is located about 4 hours southeast of my home.
It’s been many years since I was in Brenham but it is a beautiful area . . in the middle of bluebonnet country. About 20 years ago, I bought several climbing roses at the Antique Rose Emporium and the last time I was past the house where I planted them, one of the climbing roses had about taken over the neighborhood . . was a great bloomer and a gorgeous rosebush considering it probably doesn’t get much attention. I think I’ll order a couple of climbing roses
to feed the grasshoppers and see if I have any luck with them here.
Like other Quilt Alongs, instructions will be posted Monday, Thursday and Saturday. I have not written the pattern yet but will let you know the approximate duration as soon as I know.
