ARCHERY

Last week I played around with more arrows.  I'm going to be teaching a class on them so I needed a smallish sample. This one is made using the new Cotton and Steel fabrics

Just up the road from me is Mandy and her big red barn. It was perfect for a backdrop.




Isn't this wagon great?



thanks Mandy for letting me come and photograph my quilt top


The quilting has begun, but it's taking a while


I'll post a picture when it's all finished   : )
As usual, thanks so much for stopping by

Gorgeous combination! This design and C + S fabric was meant to be. Love how you cleverly used the arrow print as the shaft of the arrows, Carla.

Nice one Carla! That's a lot of straight lines though. Me and straight line quilting just don't get along. I keep trying...

I need all the archery inspiration I can get at the moment as it is now my turn to add to this: http://sewgiving.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/wip-possum-magic-round-1.html.
We have been referring to your other arrow quilt as inspiration.

Do you know Carla, that not only do hexies make me weak at the knees, but so do beautiful red barns!! But back to the subject in hand, your arrows are amazing. Love the quilting!

I LOVE this quilt top!!! Love. And I really, really wish I knew Mandy so I could shoot things at her big red barn. (Forget about how far I would need to travel... that setting would be worth it!)
