Inspired by a Summer Vacation

Let's celebrate the tradition of a summer vacation! For those lucky enough to have some time off, there are great places to visit in North America, including our outstanding national parks.

p.s. Check out our E-Bay shop for great bargains on quilt patterns, fabric, and new & vintage jewelry. For continuous free quilt patterns, please visit us on Twitter

Weeping Wall via the Red Bus, by Carole Schumacher

This photo-inspired quilt was an original 2019 design by Carole Schumacher. She says, "[This is] my first attempt at applique technique, landscape art, and free motion quilting on my domestic machine. All fabrics were from my stash. [This was] inspired by my visit to Glacier National Park in Summer, 2018."

As shown below, trees were stitched onto the steep hillside.  Waterfalls are also shown cascading down the cliff, highlighting the beauty of this incredible national park.

Carole achieved incredible detail on a miniature scale! To get an idea of the size of the quilt, this photo shows a white glove volunteer holding her hand in front of (never touching!) the quilt.  👍
