"Ack! The baby shower is coming soon!" Or words to that effect from Pat. Threw this one on, and whipped it out before heading to work.
Quilted with the chicken wire panto, how appropriate for a collection of baby animals. Welcome new baby!
|The one above is a "before". I had it hanging up seeking inspiration. Something must have worked because I am thrilled with how it turned out. Pat's pretty pleased too.|
|Hard to see much difference in the after, but take a look at the detail shots below.|
This quilt may require a bit of explanation. Below is a link to a facebook photo of Xande and Joe on Cycle Oregon 2016., and I hope that will help explain the inspiration for the quilt.
|This quilt represents a climb that we did up and over "Bear Camp". I don't think I've ever climbed so much!|
|All bike rides in general start with coffee, so that's where this one begins. The "Tardis" (from Dr. Who for those of us who aren't in the know) represent the "Blue Rooms" (porta potties) on Cycle Oregon.|
Where does Leigh get these ideas? I love all the fun little bits on this quilt. Lace pieces, ribbons, buttons, buckles, you name it, it's there. All appliqued by hand onto flannel.
This one was supposed to go to Cycle Oregon 2017, but we were burned out with all of the forest fires on our planned route. Oh well, next year.
