We're back to the Rodeo quilts and today I am showing some of my personal favorites and what I like about them.
I suppose this is a Sunbonnet Sue type month by month quilt. It was not fully displayed which is a shame. I love the August block with the quilt hanging on the line to dry in the sun! I have never made a quilt like this which tons of embellishments and goodies, but I really should. I am so drawn to them. Most people have a problem with self editing but I think I do the opposite...I miss out on a lot of wow factor by playing it safe.
I thought this would be a fun way to display scraps. It was not fully displayed either, so this is all of this quilt I could capture. Once again, why don't I make fun quilts like this???
A shoe! The pine needles are all embroidery stitches. The flowers are also embroidery work. I love the ribbon shoelace. I am a gingham girl so I'd love a roof like this.
My mother in law was visiting and she was with me when we were looking at these. I kept telling her this was my favorite and asking for her favorite. She could not decide. When I left I was halfway between "I am not worthy to call myself a quilter" and "Let's go quilt RIGHT NOW and get better!"
