At least I have the pieces sewn down and now have to figure out how to quilt this. I thought about quilting “virtual” trees in the dense fog in the background. Not sure what to do with the foreground. At any rate the first thing I will do is quilt in the ditch around all the trees to anchor things down and then decide. I don’t think I want to do heavy quilting on this and I am tempted to use invisible thread to not distract from the misty feeling that the fabric gives.
Do you have any quilting suggestions? I would appreciate hearing them.
I have been eyeing the fossil fern box of 90 fat quarters at Craftsy for some time. Last week when they had it on sale for $138 I decided to treat myself and buy it. It came on Tuesday and the fabrics are so pretty. Because shipping was free this comes out to not much more than $6 per yard.
I have always loved the fossil fern fabrics and have used them in a several quilts. The trouble is I never bought that much of them and none of my local stores carry them anymore. I don’t know why I bought so little of them. I think I am going to get a lot of use out of this box of fabrics. If nothing else they make great eye candy! My daughter wants me to make a rainbow quilt for her. I think we have the rainbow in this box!
The palest green is a fossil fern.
Some of the pale green and the dark blue are fossil fern fabrics.
One of the dark purple mountains is a fossil fern. That sky and water fabric were hand painted by me. That sky was one of my finest pieces. This was the first quilt that I completely free motion quilted. I decided that I need to force myself into it or I would never learn.
