Tree of Life

Just want to share this quilt which is fresh off the long arm frame of Linda Hrcka…. ( pronounced Hersh-ka) of This quilt will be overnighted and will arrive tomorrow for me to hand stitch the binding on…this quilt is actually very easy to make, I stitched it in a day…it will be in our newest book FLANNEL GATHERINGS coming out in July along with our wool & needle flannels from Moda, a July release also…hopefully your local shop owner will order our book at market or you can always pre-order from us…

The main reason I am giving you a peek at this quilt is….how AWESOME is that quilting! I can’t wait to hang it in the booth for all to enjoy….the Tree of Life… Is so Man-ly yet pretty at the same time…how did that happen?…the quilt is 100ish,x100ish…can’t remember if it is 102 or 106, but anyway it would be a great big quilt for a cabin or a young mans room…especially an “outdoors man” like our boys are…

My quilters work extremely hard to get me the quilts finished for shows…it always comes down to the last minute because we are always pushing to get more done, lots of next day shipping and late-nite binding sessions….thanks Linda and Val and Pat!

I will be posting more of the quilts from the book and other things…during the show…

    Ever since you “introduced” us to Linda’s quilting I have been following her blog. She does amazing work and you give her an amazing “canvas” to work with. Tree of Life is great!
