It looks like the stream and mountains are quilted. Is that just an illusion? OR IS THAT JUST MY EYESIGHT!!! oh all the things I dislike most about my matured state.... it is having loosing my 20/20 vision. I have found that I can't wear contacts when I sew,, just can't see a well as with glasses and I hate wearing glasses.

Yes that's an illusion Miki. Nothing is quilted yet. I know what you mean about the eye sight but mine starting getting worse in my 30's so I've been wearing glasses for years!! I did the contact thing for awhile when I was still working in public, but its just the glasses now. :)

Miki - I also thought there was a horse but the rest I got :)

Connie - what a wonderful piece of fabric and you're doing a great job with the animals!

That's great, I spotted all the animals although I did think that the Elk was a horse too just by the way it stood!  A friend of mine did something similar by using a pieced background and machine embroidering ontop with some applique - I will post a piccie but you may or may not be able to see the detail.

Cindy

You put me to shame as I haven't done any sewing really since before Christmas.  I really must shake a leg and get a move on as I have lots of projects to do this year!  Wren's embroidery block is just gorgeous, she will be thrilled I'm sure.

Thats beautiful Connie! I saw all the animals, thought it was a Moose and deer though. LOL, I was close. I didn't see the goose until I saw Miki's post saying there is two birds. I knew it was an Eagle though :)

That's beautiful also Milica. Lovely work.

Connie and Milica- 

Not sure whether I admire the workmanship more or your patience for doing it! Either way, I am impressed!

Thanks ladies!! You're all very kind. I just love having a little project like this to jump back to once in awhile when I need a change of pace. Last night I found online some silhouettes of a moose and some wolves that are very small and will look great in the trees behind the main scene.

Milica that piece your friend did is spectacular!! Is she going to hang it for display? I think mine will probably end up in the kids game room.

Dorian, Meg and Cindy

That quilt was made by a friend of mine, made for her 9 year old daughter who loves fairies - there are fairies appliqued to the quilt.  This quilt is not a panel but a pieced background which has been machine embroidered in parts.  It looks fantastic - photos do not do it justice.

Milica - your friend's quilt is lovely - pass on our compliments :)

Connie - Milica and I recognised your fabric in a BC thread - it was used in a Hoffman Fabrics quilt :)

Woohootersville! I finally have something to post. It sounds meager compared to all you ladies do, but I finished 10 blocks for the Zimbabwe quilt. 'Fraid I got a little carried away when cutting fabric, cut enough for another 10.

All I can say is WOW to Connie, Cindy, and Milica! I love the work you have done. In January I have accomplished, hmmmmm....not much in the way of quilting :(

I have been at the shop a lot, so I've ordered, and inventoried, and priced, and displayed, and sold (not enough yet), but...I knew that quilting would take a back seat for a little while.

I have started hand quilting my sampler quilt. Not an easy task since I have never done this before. The only place I had to lay it out to sandwich it was in the front hall, so I washed the floor, then spent a good deal of time shooing the dogs away while I basted. Even though I'm still getting the hang of it, I like doing this kind of handwork.

I took a class this past weekend on free-motion quilting. We each had a panel with lines on it to follow. Yikes, but that was not an easy thing to do. All I can say is practice, practice, practice.

Miki,

You haven't been here long enough to have heard how difficult it is for me to get pictures of my work. I am married to a man who thinks he is Ansel Adams, Matthew Brady, and Louis Daguerre all rolled into one. I have very few candid shots of my children because by the time he has the light meter and the view finder in focus and flash adjusted and all the other gadets in sync, the Kodak moment is over, and everyone has walked away! LOL Bless his heart! He does beautiful portraits and his still life's are wonderful, but he is so methodical that action shots are out of the question.

Granted, my blocks won't be jumping around, I hope not anyway, but he is very particular where he gets film developed. The whole thing is a nightmare to me. That said, I will do my best.

Meg, "nuf said"   I understand.  We are the family who until digital cameras and computers took pictures that never got developed, just rolls of film lying around waiting to be developed.
