I am using this template to cut out 2 pieces from a charm pack...Sandhill Plums by Kansas Troubles. DH helped me by tracing the seam line on each piece :-)
Then I machine stitched the pieces together...dot to dot. Then I hand pieced the rows together. 15 rows needed for my tablecloth. I'm stitching the last 4 rows on.
While waiting for DH to catch up with marking the pieces, I was inspired to make a wool wall hanging found in 2011 Primitive Quilts magazine.
Elinor really liked the idea!
The background quilt is a frame where smaller quilts can be displayed. Seasonal quilts that can be switched out during the year. The crow and pumpkin are a favorite place for me to start.
We have a good number of crows around here...but also some other beautiful birds like Edie here...we see lots of egrets.
And a few Heron. This one decided to fly into someone's fenced yard. Good thing the german shepherd who lives there wasn't home!
Thanks for visiting. I hope you'll come back next week for a 2 book giveaway!
