My Our Land Quilt is finished

The Clothworks blog The Works published a series of nine quilt blocks as part of the Our Land QAL in late 2016. I used my American Made Brand Solids (of course!) to make my quilt after first downsizing the blocks from 12'' finished to 6''.

Ta da!

I had a blast with the FMQing.  I did a feather-like leave thing on much of the blue background.

The sunflower and the corn got some pebbles.

I did some straight lines on the cactus.

Each of these blocks were fun to create and it was fun and challenging to figure out how to FMQ them.

I don't have a name for this quilt yet but it linked up with  Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Thanks American Made Brand Solids!

Have a wonderful day! Patty
