Forest QAL Finish


I took part in Shape-Moth 's forest quilt along over the summer.  I had to adjust some of the pieces to make it a more North American look in contrast to the European cousins. I did a variety of quilting (home machine), thread painting, used many color threads (back is strictly a beige thread), buried lots of knots and threads, and finally found a home for the outdoors fabric used in the final border.  I am totally in love with the outcome.
































I will be linking up with the other finished projects from this QAL over HERE.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

Oh Sharon!!! What a treasure! That quilt is a piece of art girlfriend! I love all the little details, and that raccoon has totally won my heart :*D You've done a magnificent job of choosing the right fabrics for each block (those feathers look REAL!) and then quilting just enough to pop each one perfectly. Great job and congrats on a special finish!!!

Ooohhhh I thought the raccoon was my favorite, then I loved the little fox, then the squirrel...let's just say I can't choose a favorite! This would definitively be an award winner in my book! (SMILES!) I'm curious, what did you do with this once it was finished???

Val's Quilting Studio said...

First I loved the raccoon, then I feel in love with the fox, then the little squirrel....I can't pick a favorite!!! I absolutely love this quilt Sharon!! It's certainly an "award winner" in my book! V:)I'm curious....what did you do with it after you finished?
