XXX yards of thread in the quilting
XXX pieces, Intermediate difficulty
I plan to use different leaf prints and greens for each of the trees, water patterned fabrics for the center and grass print around the edges of the “lake”. I also have all those brown bark prints from my house quilt for the tree trunks.
Since this is a king size quilt, diamonds will be 3″ and I’m planning a flying geese border with blue sky fabrics for the setting and browns for the “geese”- I’ll make a single border down the sides and a double border on the top and bottom. Possibly Wyoming Valley blocks at the corners… Wonder if I should make the geese flying clock wise or widdershins?
I am going to work into the quilting design a potato- possibly appliqued, possibly only quilted- with my signature in it. Because, when he was telling me that he would be happy with anything I came up with, Robert said “I don’t care- make what you would like to have in your cabin in Wyoming. If it has potatoes on it, I’ll like it”
Robert has disappeared with money from my friend Carol so I am not going to finish this quilt for him and it’s going on the back burner until I finish other projects I was working on before I was commissioned for this quilt. I will finish it- for me or to give to someone- but in my own time.
I’ve been working on these when I can’t carry something large but I need to carry something to do (Dr visits, etc).
