nature fabric quilt block for Ruby Tuesday


I bought quite a bit of nature themed fabric last weekend in Maine and have decided to make a nature themed quilt by framing some of the beautiful fabric pictures to make quilt blocks. It has been a battle getting the thread tension adjusted on my sewing machine, but now I think I can manage it and cope with the frustration when it doesn't work correctly. More blocks will be posted as I progress along.This one shown includes a bit of reddish tones including the border fabric(Old English Rose, by Gail Kessler for Andover Fabrics Inc) The nature scene is I think from Timeless Treasures. Some of the fat quarters do not include the selvages which id the pattern and fabric manufacturer. What fun it is getting involved in a project such as this!

A swift-flowing stream—
raccoon, bear, beaver, eagle,
and deer quench their thirst.
