The Rural Squirrel in Northcott has made it's way to QuiltCon2016.....
And back again.
But before making it's way to sunny California, these squirrels made their way out to the old hay wagon for a midwinter photo shoot. This playful model is on his way down the right side of the quilt.
And this one is on his way up the tree on the left. Dodging snowflakes along the way!
Now for a few close ups of those bright and delightful samplings from the Northcott ColorWorks Concepts, which you can read more about here and here.
I am so excited to have my quilt returned after it's exciting journey. It kind of feels like cheating to say that I had a quilt on display at QuiltCon2016 when I never had to submit this quilt for acceptance by the judges. Perhaps next year?
Thank you to Northcott Fabrics for offering me the opportunity to design a quilt for your booth!!! The making of the Rural Squirrel quilt was so much fun and it was such a pleasure to be able to play with your newest line of ColorWorks Concepts fabrics!
I loved working with the samples from the ColorWorks Concepts line and really enjoyed pairing them up with some bright shades from the ColorWorks Premium Solids collection. The backing fabric is one of my favourites. What a fantastic and fun print!
"Rural Squirrel" in Northcott ColorWorks Concepts finished at approximately 50" x 60"
and was the 81st use of my 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.
The Rural Squirrel quilt is made using traditional methods and is not paper pieced. The pattern provides material requirements, cutting instructions and detailed step-by-step directions. The Rural Squirrel in Brown Neutrals can be seen in this post. And Rural Squirrel in Cotton Couture can be seen here. Really this pattern could work in any combination! If you are interested, the pdf quilt pattern is for sale in my pattern shop.
Thank you for another wonderful photo opportunity.... My trusty old hay wagon. In winter.
