Over the River and Through the Woods...

...to Tamarack Shack we go :)


This is Marlene's Over the River and Though the Woods quilt, a pattern from Crabapple Hill.
Marlene did a beautiful job embroidering this quilt top and I was very flattered she ask me to quilt it for her.  Marlene has sent a few quilt tops to Judi at Green Fairy so I was a bit nervous at first but once we started talking about how she wanted it quilted those nerves just disappeared.  


Marlene asked for stippling in the background and to leave the geese and star points unquilted. I just love how they pop off the quilt as I just did SID around them. I suggested cross hatching the center rectangle and then decided to also cross hatch the centers of the blocks.  Added some free hand quilting in the embroidered scene to highlight the landscape images.





The temperatures have finally warmed up here and the snow is starting to melt!  Let's hope spring has arrived early.
