For awhile I thought maybe the golden autumn light would escape us with all the rain, wind, fog and frost. But so far this week the weather has been amazing and I took the opportunity to get some more pictures of my 'Field & Forest' quilt (in progress) while the light was still good.
I rarely work with oranges, golds and greens. They're not usually my first choices when quilt making, but clearly I need to break from tradition more often. These rich earthy tones beautifully compliment the embroidered blocks of flora and fauna.
The addition of feather-stitching highlights the embroidered blocks. The embroidery motifs I used are a random mix from a wonderful vintage collection I tagged Field & Forest.
The pattern includes over forty designs with all sorts of mushrooms, acorns, ladybugs, leaves and wildflowers in varying sizes from 1 to 7 inches. Such fun stitching!
