Drag The River Quilt after the Fair

Preview Image: 

The Fair is over and the quilt is sitting in the house ready to be delivered to Jon Snodgrass.  

 

At the Fair, I was excited to take a photo as taking photographs of quilts is a pain.  BUT, they didn't hang it.  It was folded over a bar.  Nobody that looked at it would have seen the whole story.  I was kinda frustrated.  We took a picture as we took it down though, so it worked out I suppose.

 

 

"Wichita Skyline"

So we got back from Wichita over a week ago, and I was pretty motivated to get to work on the quilt right away, but I was not feeling well FOR SO LONG after we got back.  Yuck.  The quilt is due to the fair next week, and I am not even halfway through the quilting.  The quilt top is all applique.  Originally, I was going to piece it all.  I'm very happy that I changed my mind.  I think the truck is the most important thing, and I am super happy with how it came out.  That was not going to happen if I pieced it.

 

This Year's Fair Quilt

Perusing old blog posts, I found that the quilt I am making for the Fair this year started percolating in my brain during the summer of 2014.  Wow.  I suck.
