I haven't posted new photos is a LONG time. Well, now is the time!
This quilt is a customer quilt. The blocks were hand pieced/appliqued by her mother-in-law. Mrs. Strube, my customer, has sewn them into a quilt top for a family member. I added some "heirloom-look" quilting. Mrs. Strube request a fleur de lis in the quarter circle base to the Grandmother's fan. Then I added traditional-look stitching to the fan blades, echo quilting outside the fan edge, and a decorative feather in each square's opposite corner. Feather borders complete this time-honored look.
This one I designed and made for Jim Schwartz as a retirement gift. Jim was the first Director of the Wyoming Livestock Board and retired in 2011. The quilt features Wyoming brands of some of his many ranching buddies, and it features the Bucking Horse and Rider trademark of Wyoming. It was great fun making this quilt.
The quilting design was specially designed for me and uses the WYO lettering, the Horse and Rider design. These designs are trademarks of the State of Wyoming/University of Wyoming and are used under license by Stephanie Logan and Sheep Camp Quilt Supply.
