I am attempting my first needle turned applique quilt. I love the southwest colors scheme and have had these colors in my home. While on our vacation to the SW I fell in love with the pattern Quail Trail by Adriane Walsh. I didn’t like a few things so I changed them. My background is a light and med cream 10.5″ HTS arranged into diamond shapes. I am enlarging it from wall hanging to queen size bed. That means more appliques and may throw in a few reminders of our trip, like the cactus, gecko in the shower, and just few other things. Did I say I liked her pattern? Maybe the idea of it. Oh well such is life.
While waiting at the hospital while hubby was have outpatient procedures done I got the first applique finished. In the bottom right hand side of this block will be an adobe building. I think I will like this.
