Hoffman Call of the Wild

The latest in Hoffman's Call of the wild series has landed in local quilt stores.  This is my version of the Elk panel.  Click here if you would like to see all the digital panels they have developed so far.  The blue tones in this panel were so exciting to work with.

It took a little while to figure out what I wanted to do with the Racoon panel.  Finally I zoned in on the geese flying in the sky and decided that flying geese blocks on the side would work.

The quilting on both quilts was fairly simple all over curves.  They were samples for Trendtex and needed to be finished in a hurry, so simple it was.

Hope you are having a great day!!!  Take care.

Today's quilt is made from "Sunday Supper" by Sweetwater for Moda  I fell in love with this line when it first came out this spring.  However, life has been a little busy, so I just finished the quilt this week.

The pattern I used is "Meadow" by Corey Yoder.  It is in the book Scraps made simple.  There are several patterns in this book that I want to make, when I get a minute.  LOL!

I hope that you all are having a wonderful summer.  There is a chance that the smoke here in BC will ease up a little.  With ratings between 8 (high) and 49 (extreme) on the air quality index here in Kamloops, it has been difficult for anyone to spend time outside enjoying our summer. Fingers crossed wishing for rain!
