Woodland Winter complete!

(I did go back and fix.)

Harriet and Carrie, I must apologize...
instead of following the instructions from your book "Quilter's Academy Freshman Year" pg. 35, I did the following:
because of time constraints and all the stopping and starting, I ended up sewing together Rows 1 and 2
again and again, then ended up with one single row at the end (see left)
This will be a quilt to make again and again - it goes together nice and quick and a person could choose to use all different kinds of fabrics.  This would be perfect for practicing quilting over and over again before quilting something larger and more intricate.

Here's a lovely note from Carrie and Harriet Hargrave to their learning quilters:

This is why I decided to organize this in my dining room coat closet:

All of the above are "Quilter's Academy" projects -
now if only I could learn to take decent photos after the sun has gone down!!

I'm looking forward now to the next class from "Quilter's Academy" Freshman Year:
Carrie's Cowboy Corral Quilt

I'm really looking forward to this because of the fussy cutting and I found really fun cowboy-themed fabrics! This ought to be the perfect Christmas present for my nine year old son....shhhh..... ;-)

At the beginning of February, I made cutting, piecing and finishing this quilt top part of my five goals for February....can I do it?!?  

We'll see..........


  1. Congratulations! Your new quilt turned out very well... I'm still loving that pine cone print!

  2. Thank you so much! Harriet and Carrie Hargrave have you create 11 tops, then border them and then quilt them - I hope to have it all done by summer and begin their Quilter's Academy sophomore year.

  3. That's a lovely top and it sounds like a fun book. Enjoy your next projects!

  4. Very nice. Great colors...so vibrant. Thanks for sharing and have a great day
