Arboretum Quilt

Barbara made a quilt to hang in the
new Arboretum in Lebanon, TN.
Now, I don't know a lot, well actually very little,
about Master Gardeners or an
I do know 2 Master Gardeners,
Barbara and Kaoru. 
 I know they spent a lot of time and effort
on the Arboretum and they are very excited
and proud.
So I was very honored that Barbara asked
me to quilt her large wallhanging.
The pictures are not very good but I still wanted
to share
The center has Poplar leaves, which
is the Tennessee state tree.
Then the leaves in the 1st border are signed by all of the
Master Gardeners that worked on the
She wanted me to quilt the name, city, state and
when the Arboretum was built so that future
visitors would know.
My friend and an unbelievable quilter,
Kaoru, signed her leaf in a special way...
I don't know what it says but it looks pretty cool.
(Sorry for the blurred picture.)
This will hang in the Arboretum
for all the visitors to see.
Measures 55x55.
I used 2 layers of 80/20 batting.
Glide and SoFine thread.
It may look a little yellow in the pictures,
but it is green.
Thanks for stopping by.

Cheryl's wall hanging

I quilted a wall hanging for Cheryl
over the weekend.
The pattern is by Edyta Sitar
but Cheryl said she only made the
top part of the pattern.
 Sorry I don't know the name
but it is in
(after I asked my quilting guru, Marita)
 Edyta's Scrappy Fireworks book.

I really like this and I now want to make one.
I have the perfect place to hang it.
Cheryl is gifting this one and plans to make another also.

I used a layer of 80/20 and a layer of Tuscany wool,
SoFine and Glide thread.
All quilting is freehand.

I had fun quilting this one and
can't wait to get started on mine,
like I needed something added to my list.

Have a good rest of the week
and thanks for stopping by.
