Quilter’s Academy – Masters Year

The “My Story” quilt that I made in 2001.  This quilt is referred to as the inspiration for one of the quilts in “Quilter’s Academy Vol. 5 – Masters Year” by Harriet Hargrave and Carrie Hargrave-Jones.

Here’s what I wrote about it at the time:  “Pattern: Medallion Quilt – “My Story” Dimensions: Queen – 92″ x 92″

This quilt is about our new log home in the mountains. Each section of it relates to some aspect of the location. The blocks from the center out are: log cabin, filtered view of the lake through the pine trees, flying geese, deer and moose tracks, my expanded version of delectable mountains, and finally bear paws. The quilt is machine pieced, with the four seasons cornerstone blocks hand appliqued. Several of the blocks used are my versions of traditional blocks. The quilt was then machine quilted. This quilt was started in July 2001 and completed early December 2001. There are 4290 pieces in this quilt. It is one of my most favorites.
