I made this quilt for my brother who lives in the southwestern United States. He loves living in that part of the country, the warmth, mountains, forests and wildlife. I wanted to personalize the quilt so I quilted bears, rams and mountains from pictures he had sent to me.
Here’s the bear and ram that were quilted in each triangle.
I used these curls to represent wind.
There’s also point to point and quilted leaves in this block.
Line dancing was appropriate for a lot of triangles since he likes to dance.
The outside border just has more straight lines and leaves.
The small green border has a quote from Thoreau. It reads “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Thanks for stopping by.
