I loved that the quilt was a series of sweet country scenes. The pig pulling a little hay cart on his way to the mill and a rooster that's hitched a ride on his back . . .
. . . the covered bridge crossing a winding stream . . . .
. . . a black carriage being pulled by a spotted pony . . . crows on the fences . . .
. . . . a couple of houses nestled close enough together to share a clothes line so a quilt could be hung out to dry . . .
. . . and of course, a load of hay ready to be loaded into a big red barn. And every barnyard needs a rooster to get you going in the morning.
I worked on this quilt over a period of several months throughout the winter and finally finished it mid-March. I gained a lot of confidence in my ability to follow some pretty detailed instructions, as well as doing a lot of piecing and applique, but little by little it came together. It was kind of like putting a puzzle together and so it was very rewarding to have all the pieces fit together just like they're supposed to.
It was such a fun project and fits just perfect into my country home and lifestyle.
