When Marcelle gave me her "My Tribe" quilt several weeks back we discussed several ideas for quilting but none of them really 'gelwith' the quilt, that is until I saw an idea on a fellow long- arm- quilters blog! Then the stars aligned and it was all go!
Marcelle got the pattern from Amy Friend's book "Intentional Piecing" after she had 'borrowed' a fabric bundle from her friend! This friend was recently married and Marcelle wanted to make her friend a special wedding quilt to mark the occassion. This 'borrowed' fabric was coveted by her friend so Marcelle knew she wouldn't mind if it secretly disappeared! Crikey we quilters can be a sneaky bunch!
When I spotted Tia's quilting on one of her customers quilts I knew it was the design this quilt needed. I quickly emailed Tia asking if she would mind me using her fabulous idea......."yes go for it!" she said! Whoopwhoop. Looking like map contour lines I believe this design works so well with these Teepee's, it makes me think of the scene in the movie Dances with Wolves where there is a network of Teepees by the riverside on the prairie.
Measuring 40" x 42" makes for an awesome lap quilt or even better a wall hanging. This really was a pleasure and so much fun to quilt! Marcelle made a fabulously interesting backing.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoying Marcelle's quilt...............I hope you will visit again soon.
