The past two days have been absolutely gorgeous. I went for a walk on our local greenway yesterday. Not many signs of spring yet except for the frantic croaking of the frogs who are trying to find partners to make little tadpoles. The wetlands over which the boardwalk traverses are exceptionally muddy and wet after all the rains and snow-melt this winter.
I also took advantage of the warm day to sit out on the deck and finish reading my latest novel: The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo, by Stieg Larsson. Yikes! What a novel!
What really makes this quilt striking are the solid black appliques of buffalo, bear, and the human figures involved in the journey. I decided to just echo around them.
In some of the larger areas, I quilted in some of the wild animals from Laura Lee Fritz's book, 250 Continuous Line Quilting Designs. I think it is fun to find a quilting surprise here and there!
Can you spot the grizzly bear standing on his hind legs?
Here is a little fawn.
