quilted:  by me with Aurifil 40wt in yellow on my Babylock Sofia, design freehand drawn with chalk pencil

fabrics: hand dyed from stash, background is woven
binding:   hand dyed scraps


For Project Quilting 2015 challenge 2 I pulled all sunrise/ sunset hand dyed from stash.  Thinking about doing strips that became hst.  thinking of how the sky looks when kayaking in Canada.  

Hand dyes from the 1990s, some made my me some purchased from Sherry Wood
I subcut the strip sets but then decided to turn them into hst
Sofia helped with the layout of the HST

Using the yellow 40wt Aurfil made the quilting really stand out.  I am please enough to put it into the living room quilt display lineup.

Its tiring for Sofiasewing and quilting all day.

Rainbow Forrest
This is my entry in the ROYGBIV category.

Title: Rainbow Forrest
Size: 32" x 32"
Pattern: original by Me
Quilted:  by me
Fabrics: top-scrap stash.  back-Heather Ross Pin People

my inspirations:
My friend Cora Quilts beautiful Rainbow log cabin top and
the scrappy log cabin QAL.
Recent sorting and organizing of scraps by color.
And of course trees.  Pine trees and log cabins.  
A dream of mine to someday live in one in the mountains or at least camp in a lot of national and state forrests.

I straight line quilted the log cabin blocks.  And did some dense pebble like quilting-i was thinking snowballs.

This quilt is now going to reside in my new popup trailer.  #makeyourcamperpretty
