Yellowstone The Quilt

Amador Valley Quilters will host Quilted Treasures XVII this April, and one of the quilts I want to show is from my Yellowstone patch series. That means I have to finish it first. Here’s how it started.

The itty-bitty beginning

The itty-bitty beginning

I wanted the patch that features two people looking out a window to appear as if the viewer was looking out a window. However, when you start with a 4″ center patch, you aren’t going to get a king-size quilt. I think this piece is 6″ x 10″. I added a boatload of beads, but it is still only 6″ x 10″.

Since using an underquilt worked well for one of my Colors of the Vineyard quilts, I decided to do that again. After auditioning a bunch of browns and blacks, my eyes fell on this piece.

I love this fabric, and had just enough to bring the quilt to a respectable 16″ x 20″.

All that’s left is the sleeve and filling out the registration forms. See you April 22-23 at the Robert Livermore Community Center in Livermore, California.

Luck and wisdom!

    Love it! I particularly like how you got humans, bison and bears (paw prints) all in such a compact size.
