Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
InstructionsI did color play with all my scraps and meditated for a long time on how to put this together.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Casual, Traditional, Whimsical
I used: - #17 chain block pattern September block of the Month - Many of the cotton backing of the blocks were in the car load of donated material from my Lethbridge friends. - I used my Hand dyed material in green tones., One of my "BOM buddies" made into a secret pocket. - I used a lot of my skill at Free Motion Machine quilting, aplica and imagination. I also used 1/2 a cone of thread, 3 spools of thread and 22 bobbins of thread.
What was your inspiration?
This Camoflage quilt was the suggestion of the 12 year old boy's Grandma. She brought me the quilt batting left from his great Grandma's quilt sewing room.
All the great courses on Craftsy.
What are you most proud of?
I'm proud of all my friends that donated the materials for this quilt.
