Southwestern Quilt

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.
