Bounty

Last spring I saw a display of fabulous art quilts at the HMQS show made by a talented group of quilters.  I was enthralled with their work and wanted to learn more about it.   So in September after taking a class from Lisa, one of their members, and then speaking with their fearless leader, Sylvia at the Utah Quilt Guild Annual Meeting I join.  The basis for their little group is that someone picks a word and everyone makes a 12"x12" quilt based on that word.  In November it was my turn to pick a word.  I chose bounty.  It seemed fitting for the month of Thanksgiving.  A farmer's market seemed the perfect way to display the bounty of the earth.  I made letters to spell out farm fresh and was barely able to make that fit in my allotted 12".  I added bins of veggies on top and then made me some fields. 
It was fun to finish this up while snow fell outside my window.  Sure helped to chase away the January blahs.

  1. Your little quilt does look like it is "farm fresh". Fits the word you chose very well. That's a fun idea.
