    I believe we all need one of those so we can lose ourselves in the picture. I can definitely go into dream land with it.
    You did Cades Cove justice with this.

    I should add that the cabin applique came from Maria Holloway's quilt shop, Holloway's Country Home in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains, 20 miles from Gatlinburg, TN. Her wall hanging inspired mine, although I freehanded it rather than using a pattern.
    Located on Scenic Highway 321
    3892 Cosby Highway
    Cosby, TN 37722
    (423) 487-3866
    It is a wonderful shop and Maria creates the most wonderful patterns (lots of wall hangings).
    Here's the web site: www.hollowaysquilts.com

    It was actually very easy. I iron the fabric for each piece onto wonder under, then cut out the shape. After that it's just a process of layering and arranging the pieces, and ironing them onto the backing; I use muslin for the backing. Then I use a machine blanket stitch aroung the different pieces and randomly quilt inside the larger pieces. I used iron on batting which made the quilting process easier and prevented bunching. I use a wrapping method of backing, cutting the backing larger than the piece, then wrapping it around to the front to frame the piece. This works well for wall hangings and small projects.

    The cabin applique came from Holloway's Country Home, a wonderful quilt shop in Cosby, TN, 20 miles from Gatlinburg, and in the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains. She had a kit for a similar hanging, but I just bought the cabin and freehanded my background. The next one I am planning is a view of the house my Grandparents lived in when I was a child. With the iron on photo fabric, you can put any photo you desire into a piece.

    Wow! I love it! That is a great tip of using the iron-on-photo of the house.

    I haven't been to Cade's Cove since my family went there when I was about 10 (I'm 52 now)
    It's even prettier than I remember! Thanks for the memories
