Turkey Tracks: The Four Seasons Quilts

The Four Seasons Quilts

 

I have spent large time chunks this summer making the Coastal Quilters’ 2015 challenge:  The Four Seasons.

We could do one of the seasons, or all four.

We had a length requirement, but could use a range of sizes for the width.

These challenge quilts will be hung at our state show, mounted by the Pine Tree Quilters Guild, in July 2015.

 

I was inspired by the banner show from Italy at the Machine Expo in Manchester, New Hampshire, last spring.  These seasonal banners were hung by the separate seasons–and you can see them in an earlier post here.

But here’s a reminder–here’s spring:

And I used an idea done by Sarah Fielke in the book by Sarah and Kathy Doughty, MATERIAL OBSESSIONS 2.

 

Fielke supplied the idea for the tree crown–made with a wedge ruler–and the template for the tree trunk.

 

Here are my “Four Seasons”:

Here’s a detail of the pearl cotton quilting used in all the quilts:
