In February, I curated some red and white quilts to show you. A virtual High Road Museum, if you will. In French, that would be Musée de la Grande Route, which sounds fabulous to me, so welcome back to my museum. I don't know French so if that isn't right, please let me know.
Since I showed you a finished tree quilt yesterday, I decided to find my collection of tree quilts to show you. I added a label for that to some of my older posts, and hope that didn't mess up your blog feed.
This is the quilt I showed you yesterday. It uses scraps of actual 1930s fabric and reproductions as the background. The tree in the foreground is also a scrap. The same fabric was cut up in circles for the leaves and the trunk. It is completely hand stitched.
This one is another summertime quilt that is made with scraps. In this one, the background is plain while the focal point uses the scraps. This quilt is also raw edge applique, but it is machine stitched, and has some added embroidery.
This quilt also has a tree, although the tree is not the main feature. It uses fabrics that are not cotton. They are raw edge and machine stitched. So if you were thinking I don't know how to make a tree when you saw the other ones, you can see that I have made some progress.
This improv quilt is machine pieced. I used some older fabric that was in the stash. It is machine stitched and quilted.
All of the other quilts I showed you are small quilts. This larger quilt is a wholecloth quilt. There is a large variety of buttons which are stitched to the quilt.
Thank you for visiting Musée de la Grande Route. We hope you come again soon.
