High Plains Heritage Quilters 2017 Quilt

Here is the story on the High Plains Heritage Quilters 2017 Quilt

The title of the quilt is "Les Fleurs du Jardin." This quilt was 
appliqued by Barbara Cochran (1941-2015), Denver/Fort Collins CO, and 
Darcy Garretson, Haxtun. 

Piecing, appliqued sashing and binding by HPHQ 
raffle committee in the spring of 2017.

The machine quilting on wool/cotton batting by Alycia Carmin of, 
Kersey, Colorado.

Block of the Month pattern designed by Lisa Shiller of Village Classics in 1998.

Fabrics in the quilt top are from the 1998-2002 era from Barbara's fabric collection, the backing the only new fabric in the quilt. 

Barbara's blocks were among the fabric donated to HPHQ in 2016. 

The unidentified blocks were identified through pictures shared on the 
Facebook Applique group after which the pattern was located in Barbara's book collection. The finished quilt measures 63" X 75"

The quilt raffle will be held September 30, 2017 at 4:00 pm at the 
Haxtun Community Center, Haxtun, Colorado.

Now you have all the Quilt info -It's all about me ( ha ha ha)
I LOOOOVED this quilt! It was so much fun and detail to check out! 

Here are a few close ups that I took of the quilting ;-)

That Piping ( sort of) the yellow between the two blues was just beautiful and I wanted it to pop
so on one side there are lines, and the other I feathered the heck out of!

Each block left great room to play and enhance the applique

This is truly a gorgoeus quilt and I was so lucky to be the one that quilted it

If you are interested in buying raffle tixs - let me know and I will hook you up with the guild!!

Shameless plug
