Landscape quilt

Last year when I had a back injury, Kelly from I Have A Notion sent me a very cute Landscape pattern with some coordinating fabric. As I could not do much quilting, it was a good project for me to work on as I felt up to it.

Fast forward to last week when my BFF was visiting. I showed her the top that I made. She challenged me to finish the little quilt. So I dug out the threads

and started machine quilting the details of the Landscape.

I now have a completed Fall landscape quilt hanging on the wall.

I would love to make one for Spring and Summer to change out with the seasons.

Beautiful. I purchased a landscape book recently since this method seems very appealing to me.

Just beautiful!

What a beauty Jocelyn. At first I thought the spools of thread were part of the design & said 'that is so cool'. Chuckle. Better eyesight soon I hope. Hope you & BFF had a grand time.

Pop over & tell your friends about our 'quilting' giveaway that ends tomorrow.

Have a beautiful weekend, my friend ~

How pretty! I purchased a landscape pattern of Mt. Rainier when we were in Seattle, and I had just barely started quilting. I didn't have the skills for it then, but wasn't sure I'd ever get back to the area. Maybe it's time to pull it out and get started!

You did a beautiful job.......I have a kit with a Tuscany countryside. I have not attempted it yet.

One of the ladies in our group read about a pass around quilt challenge.... that is like the game telephone.... Each person does a minature quilt and then passes it to the next person....then that person does something similar to the one that was passed to them. Such as if one did a quilt with shoes on it the next person maybe could do one with purses and it keeps going around. I am waiting to see if our group is going to do it and then I'm going to do the Tuscan countryside

Beautiful! I have always wanted to do a landscape but never thought of one that small. Now, where on earth do you get a kit like that?
