|This quilt was a challenge, and became known to my friend Mia, with whom I email daily, as "The Buffalo Quilt." No, it's got nothing to do with Buffalo, but it surely had me buffaloed for a long time. That's the term horse riders use when they are fearful of a horse. Most of my fears were from my own lack of note taking when Pat dropped it off. Note to self "some sort of ruler work." isn't helpful when it comes time to quilt! Once started though, it really went quickly. The blocks are large, and since they are set on point, there was quite a bit of back and forth on the quilting. I couldn't quite get the entire block in to quilt it all at once, so do a section, advance, do a section, retreat. Thank goodness for my motorized fabric advance!|
Here's a shot of the backing, although it's actually dark green. I stitched around the print flowers, and in the ditch around the black background of the flowers. Then feathers in the solid black background around the stars.
