This is the quilt I made for Al's brother Joe. He lets us stay in his home down here in Apache Junction, Arizona. I really think he's going to love this... it fits in perfectly with his decor. I spent about a week quilting it then I put off doing the binding... I was just tired of working on it. Finished up the last stitch on it last night!!
These are a couple of close ups of the stitches I used. It took me a while to decide how to quilt this. I decided that the soft beige area looked like sand. There are two shades of beige crackle fabric so I did pebble quilting in one area and kind of a back and forth blown sand look in the other. Then I put stipple around the "mountains" and another back and forth "wood" look on the brown fabric that is under the mountains.
I did about 5 different quilting designs thoughout this quilt.
I just SO HAPPY that it's finished. It's a huge weight off my back. Joe will be down here for Easter and we are leaving in about a week. He knows this is here waiting for him but he hasn't seen it yet.
MARK another project off the TO-DO list!!! YEAH!!!
