    Hubby's best friend has requested another quilt (yay!)

    He would love something that reflects his passion..the outdoors and canoeing.

    He would love a landscape quilt that has the woods, water and a red canoe in it.

    Doesn't anyone know where I might be able to find a pattern for something like this?

    Thanks!

    I recall Natalie Sewell's landscape quilt just like you described. As a matter of fact Nancy's Notions just sent out their class schedule for July/Aug/Sept and that quilt is on the first page advertizing her workshop Friday and Sat Aug 27 and 28th, I am not sure if she has a pattern for this or not.

    Thanks for the tip Maggie_Sue.
    I will look into it to see if I can even just get a picture!
    I figure it will have to be applique for sure :)

    Look into Debbie Fields of GRanola Girl Designs. She has books and patterns out. I'm planning to work on a wallhanging with some of her blocks this summer.

    I cannot draw worth a hoot, but this is the picture that popped into my head. Don't you dare laugh. (No it isn't! It's a bear)

    I just thought of something. You could google simple pictures, such as the ones kids use for coloring. Bears, trees, waterfalls, canoes, all that stuff would be there I bet. You could incorporate them into an applique wallhanging.

    (and thanks for not laughing at my drawing)
