Wild and Free's Progress

Framing the stars
Wild and Free is progressing nicely. I made strip sets with 2.5 inch strips and then cut them into 2.5 inch sections.
Adding the center panel
Once the star sections were framed with the strip sets, it was time to frame the center section with the brown and add strip sets to the side. If you look closely at the center panel, you will notice that I pieced two panels together, creating a longer (wider) panel. I tried to match the flow of the mountain range and hoped the caribou section would correspond as well. I am pleased with the result.

I plan to add another brown frame around the entire piece and then a wide green border.

  2. You would never know that center section wasn't one piece. You did an awesome job matching it up

    This will be the perfect quilt for the outdoorsman (or woman).

  4. Wow! I especially love that strippy sashing you put around the star blocks. It just picks up on the colors in the panel sections.

  5. Oh wow. The center picture does not look pieced at all. That is a very pretty "free and wild" quilt!

  7. This is a hunter's dream quilt. Someone passionate about hunting could wrap up in it, take a long nap and dream about hunting big game.

  9. Looks like it is a beautiful quilt top. I guess I need to stop by to see it in person.

  10. I am in the process of piecing fabric for the front of a quilt as you have. I hope mine turns out as well as yours did! I'm just going to take deep breath first.

  11. Just spotted your landscape quilt. Love your design and the colorful borders. I recently purchased the same fabric with the bear and moose.
