Mountain Trail top

Finished up the top for Mountain Trail! 

I only made a few changes.  Instead of 1-1/4 inch strips I used the 1-1/2 inch scraps I had on hand and already cut. 

The red diagonal has been changed to black becaue I didn't have enough red cut that size but I had black.

The red border (cut 4-1/2 inches) goes all around instead of just two sides.  Oh, and it looks like I put light in the corners instead of dark to avoid one place at the end where two of the same color ended up next to each other.

OK, I guess that's more than a 'few' changes.  (giggles)

My finished top is 32x38 inches, so it will make a nice baby quilt or lap quilt!

Here's where I found the free pattern:  Humble Quilts.
