I have loved making these quilts over the years, and have learned a lot from them as they are small enough to free me up for great experimentation. For a detailed overview of my Alliance quilts, check out this post on their blog for lots of process and pictures:
This year's theme is "Animals We Love". The contest rules are here. You still have time to enter! Deadline is May 1.
Most of you know I spent ten years as a dairy farmer and I still love Jersey calves the best...I miss them!
So I loved making this quilt, "Jersey Girls", because I could look down on their sweet faces the whole time I stitched.
I started by printing up a photo and playing around with the lay-out. Those white flowers were crocheted for me by my daughter-in-law, Esther, for Christmas. I really love them and had to use them.
I ended up using the lace a different way, though.
Those little green dots you see are stuffed velvet circles...
This was a quick 3 day project...you don't have to always spend a lot of time to realize your vision..or enter the contest!
