Another photo that got me thinking
What materials did you use?
King Sized Quilt
What are you most proud of?
I finished! It took me five years to make my first quilt, but I did it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Absolutely perfect advice... start smaller! LOL
I'm looking for a quilt to make for future Son-In-Law and love this. Where did you find the pattern for this and are the circles appliqued?
This was my own design. I had a photograph of the fields in the central U.S. that I took out of an airplane. I was struck how they were all just squares, so I selected 48 "fields" to imitate, some were huge circular fields, some justs squares, etc. I used the colors in the picture and made a bunce of random 12" x 12" blocks that I sewed together. The bottom left corner is supposed to be a "forest" of trees. The white border is the airplane window edge. I added the burgundy border to create the drop off the bed.
oh, and no, the circles are not apliqued. They are pieced. I cut the circles and then pieced the edges on to create the squares.
I see you have an inspector like I do.. Love my fur baby inspector.. And the Quilt looks amazing.. Keep up the great work
This was your first quilt? You have an awesome future ahead in quilting!!! Beautifully done, fantastic use of colour and your interpretation is dead on.
