As usual, I am down to the wire with my UFO finish for the month!
But, I am pretty
relieved proud that I finished at least one (okay, probably just one) each month--twelve quilt tops out of the UFO bin--yay!
|There was a little sunlight and even less snow, so I decided to take photos outside--wish it was still warm too!|
|Over the River and Through the Woods pattern by Crabapple Hill Studio.|
I competed the embroidery and piecing in 2008--the top hung for a couple years at Colorz for Quilts....
|...so it was about time to bring it out of the bottom of the bin and make it into a quilt!|
|The embroidery was done with brown floss on a sampler print from Blackbird Designs.|
|It's always so hard to decide how to quilt embroidered blocks.For the lyrics block, I Googled the sheet music for the song and quilted the notes above and below the embroidery.|
I don't read music, so I hope it's accurate!
I decided to just enhance the landscapes...
|and do plumes and scrolls in the flying geese.|
I'm so happy to have this one done--and it only took six years!!
