Log Cabin Quilt and CQ Projects



Log Cabin quilt top is finished, needs to be quilted. The center was a wall hanging since 2004 and September 2015 I worked an hour every day and completed in November  14. These are the wildlife we encounter living in Alaska, Wyoming and New Mexico. It is a log cabin design and all hand appliqued. The houses and center are cotton materials and the border animals are wool.  



These 2 trees are from Kathy Shawkl's class ICQC 103. The above is an embroidered tree using the split stitch and adding  French knot leaves using the "Cloud" method.
Below is a twisted tree using textured yarns. It looks like the dead tree where we walk.

 Sunday walk with the dogs at Ute Lake. We have never seen the water this high in 15 years. Thank You El Nino!

Awesome stitching. My favorite is the dead tree. Looks painted instead of stitched.

I love what you've done with the applique on the log cabin quilt. Your stitchery is also quite beautiful. Such a lovely lady and the twisted tree looks almost haunted. I'm glad you've gotten more water in your area. I know so many places need it while I seem half flooded at times. =) My lawn is like a wet sponge right now!
