Pine Tree Ridge Quilt

February 18, 2013

Thank you for all the nice comments on my last post regarding Door County Cherry Baskets!!!  I blushed every time I read them!!  I tried to respond to all the comments, but there were several of you that were No-Reply commenters.  Meaning I have no way to email you back.  Some of you even asked questions that were no-repliers.  If you did not hear from me, that is probably the reason...or I apologize if I may have missed you.

The girls are home from school today.  My MIL came to our home of our annual tradition of making Pierogi!  Yummy and messy, but they are done so we can enjoy them on Fridays!!  Now I am off to take the girls to dance and to see the accountant.  I wish I could just quilt and not deal with the business side of things...some day maybe.  :-)  BUT before I go, I have another wonderful quilt to share...Pine Tree Ridge designed by Jan Patek.  This  GORGEOUS version is the BOM offered by Primitive Gatherings here.  Trust me the photos on PG website do not do this quilt justice.  Photos never do, but when I first got the quilt, I didn't even realize it was the same quilt!!  I am so tempted to sign up now while there is still spots open because I LOVE this quilt!!  I am not a blue person, so that is really saying a lot!  I had a lot of fun with the quilting.  Again, I will let all the photos do the talking...
The quilt is wool applique on cotton.
Upside down.  :-)  I took photos of most of the blocks...I think, so I will just work by way down the quilt with the photos.  I don't want to skimp on showing you all the quilting details. :-)  Starting with the top corner...
 Lots of fun feathers.

 I LOVE the angel.  I had to quilt her a pretty dress. :-)

 I used the fabric as a guideline for the quilting.
Some of the blocks were big, making them really cool!!
 This house block was a favorite.  I quilted a clapboard roof and cobblestone chimney.
 Lots of detail quilting.

 Teeny, tiny feathers...love them.  I put a pin on there, so you could have reference of their size.
Smoke coming out of the chimney.

I loved all the quilting on the back, but had a terrible time capturing it because the lighting was not ideal.
Specifics...Dream Blend batting.  I don't believe I used any special rulers but my straight ruler.  All the quilting is freehand.  Thread...yikes...17 different threads!!1
I know...it is the detail demon in me coming out. :-)

I am going through my photos of DCCB, hopefully I can come up with a quilt process post.  My photos are not very tutorial friendly after looking at them.

Hope everyone has a great day!

  2. Fabulous! I don't think I have ever seen anything quilted so beautifully! It must be so difficult to send it back to its owner. Her piecing and applique are stunning as well. Gorgeous!

  5. If someone comes knocking on your door at dinner time on Friday's it'll be me. I LOVE perogies but have never had handmade fresh ones. You can photograph your quilts upside down or right side up and they're gorgeous. I love how you let the fabric speak to you as well. I guess you're the quilt whisperer.

  6. You did a beautiful job quilting. For the average person who isn't sending their quilt out though, I feel this quilt has a ton of blank space that is in there to sell fabric. It certainly doesn't do anything to enhance the quilt. (unless you quilt it!)

    1. Hey guess what? Jan Patek the designer of this quilt is also a fabric designer? Do you think she needs or wants to sell some fabric? The quilt is fun, whimsical and meant to enjoy...too bad we have to say negative things to help us feel better that we might not be able to quilt as good as Linda...we all have our gifts...We know what Linda's is!!!

  31. Everytime I see one of your quilting creations, I tell you that you've outdone yourself. But THIS time you've really done it. I keep looking at those pictures and am in total awe of your talents. Now you have me thinking that I need to sign up for the BOM thru PG. With their color choices and your quilting, the finished project is to die for! Congrats on another success!

  35. Making pierogi?? My son would go crazy for that. Funny enough, living in Ireland, there are a lot of Polish immigrants here and a lot of Polish food, but my son prefers the pierogi that we get when we're back in the US.

    The quilt is stunning!!
