Four Seasons, Quilted

Here is my Four Seasons, the quilt I made for Doll Quilt Swap 8, all quilted. I did the quilting myself. The quilt is about 17-1/2" x 26-1/2". I'll add the binding later today (it will be the same blue as the border), and then I'll add a hanging sleeve on the back, and lastly, the label. In March, this little quilt will fly to... (sorry, no hints!)

The back of this quilt is pretty neat too, but since it has several HUGE hints, I can't show you until it has been received at its new home.

Yes, Clare, Trish, I did machine quilt it, and I did wing it.  However, I tried to quilt it more tightly and have the wavy lines overlap more in the winter and autumn sections than I did in the summer and spring panels.

Lynne,

LOVE your quilting on your DQ. It gives a feel of the wind blowing ! Just perfect with the trees. Still hoping it's coming to live at my house.........Trish

Clare said...

I agree with Trish. The quilting does look like the wind blowing. I assume it is machine quilting? Did you just wing it?

Trisha said...

Incredible! I love how you depicted the four seasons with the trees. I love this quilt! Now to start sending out good thoughts that it is coming to me. :)

Wind blowing through the trees,
Joyful voices on the breeze,
You and me and that quilt makes three,
Here in California!
