    Wilderness Quilt

    I started this quilt for my son's wedding present when he announced his engagement. They just had their 2nd anniversary. It's hand quilted with embroidery floss and is incredibly heavy and HOT. They live in the Adirondacks, so that's okay. I still love the quilt, but am SOOO happy to no longer have this WIP on my plate!

    Wonderful design! Ilove this. It's almost a grown-up's I Spy. Took me several minutes to find all the critters. I've never been enthused about wilderness quilts 'til now, but this is really inspiring. Great work.

    You did a beautiful job on this quilt! I love how all the fabrics "speak" to each other.

    I agree. I have been 3 years trying to finish hand quilting a nine patch. Wonder if I'll ever get it done. Obviously it is not something I enjoy doing very much!! Yours is beautiful.
    God Bless,

    What a great quilt! I looked at the picture before reading your post and thought "how Adirondack" that quilt looks! Lo and behold, you write they live in the Adirondacks! They will love it and it is perfect for any home up there. People who live up there really get into the whole Adirondack theme. I am working a flannel that has some of that fish fabric in it! And I absolutely ADORE your border fabric. You did a great job.

    BTW, I just have to comment on your tag line. Let me know when you find that job, it is my dream job too! Check out my profile some time. LOL

    Oh I do love this quilt. I can imagine snuggling up under this on a cold winters night. I bet your son and his wife are crazy about it. The time you put into it has been so worth it, a real treasure for sure. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Wow. I love it. I love the way you used the half squares to create a look of trees.

    Absolute stunning!! What a labor of love that quilt is. I'm sure your son and DIL will be thrilled to receive it. I know I surely would. The fabrics go so well together and the hand quilting is beautiful.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
