MY QUILT TOP


 HERE IS THE APPLIQUE QUILT TOP I'M
DESIGNING AND MAKING FOR OUR HOME.
I STARTED WITH THE CENTER CIRCLE AND STAR
WHICH IS INSPIRED BY AN ANTIQUE TIN
COOKIE CUTTER I HAVE IN MY COLLECTION.


I WANTED TO DO SEVERAL OF MY FAVORITE
MOTIFS IN THIS QUILT SO I HAD TO DO A 
LOG CABIN SALTBOX HOUSE, BIRDS AND
 RED COXCOMB FLOWERS. I USED A SOLID
GREY/GREEN FOR THE STEAMS AND DIFFERENT
PRINTS FOR THE LEAVES.
(CLICK ON PICS TO ENLARGE)


THE HORSE AND BIRD SHAPES WERE ALSO INSPIRED 
BY ANTIQUE TIN COOKIE CUTTERS.
WE CAN GET INSPIRATION FROM ANYWHERE!


I HAVE THE ONE SIDE DONE AND WILL REPEAT
THE SAME MOTIFS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE.
I WOULD SAY THE ABOVE PIC IS A GOOD 
REPRESENTATION OF THE TRUE COLORS.


HERE I HAVE THE HORSES READY TO HAND
APPLIQUE ON THE OTHER SIDE SO IT GIVES 
A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE.
THE TOP IS 56" SQUARE AND IS A DARKER BROWN
HOMESPUN WITH BLACK IN IT BUT IT LOOKS
BROWN. I'LL BE DOING SOME DIFFERENT MOTIFS
ON THE OTHER TWO SIDES. MORE OF MY 
FAVORITE THINGS!  IT WILL BE A WHILE
 BEFORE I GET TO THE HAND QUILTING PART.
I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET SOME SPRING CLEANING
DONE AT THE SAME TIME. HAVE A WONDERFUL
DAY MY FRIENDS. 

UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI
