I mentioned in a previous post about the little quilt I was making as a part of a group of women in my guild, that are part of a book club kind of thing. We read the same book, then interpret it into a quilt. This last book was, “The Egg and I” by Betty MacDonald. Briefly, it was about a young woman who got married. Her husband had a dream to run his own chicken ranch. They bought property in the Olympic mountains in WA. It’s a true story and it was a fun story to read. Here’s my little quilt.
It’s my interpretation of their little chicken ranch in the shape of an egg. I machine quilted it on my Pfaff sewing machine. It’s much harder to quilt on a domestic machine than my longarm, in my opinion. But I wasn’t worried about stitch length or making it a show piece. It was just for fun. I’m going to add some beads to the trees to make it look like apple trees. I found just the right chicken buttons at JoAnn’s. Then I’m going to make a faced binding. I may be needing to call my friend Lynn to find out how to do that. This was a fun project to work on.
