Memories of the Ranch


Started at a quilt retreat at a Montana dude ranch in 2004, finished on New Years 2019. Each time I went to the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch near Yellowstone, I started two projects, each taught in classes with Georgia Bonesteel and Charlotte Warr Andersen. A few I never finished, and some I finished independently. Then I got the idea to put several into one turned out queen sized. Techniques included needle turned appliqué, fused and machine stitched appliqué, layered appliqué with wash-away thread, strip piecing, strip piecing with Grid Grip, hand piecing, paper piecing, etc. The hand-pieced eagle took years to finish, as I got frustrated working on the talons. One photo shows the stitching on the backside of the eagle. In early 2018, I put it all together and had it custom long armed by a talented friend. I finished the last stitches in the binding at the beginning of 2019.
