Farm Quilt....Finally

This morning, no joke, i woke up with a sewing hangover. I went to bed late, woke up with a headache and my sewing finger hurt. I hand did a binding last night and then got this one started first thing. That is 2 in under 24 hours!!

I got my farm quilt finished, nearly one year later. Check this old post to see the picture that inspired it. It is of a field on our CSA farm last year. All the lines were so beautiful and the fields were just perfect....this quilt was to reflect all the different things growing, even the fields that were prepared to plant. I hand quilted this in all circles. Not intentionally, it turned out a little like crop circles! :o)

My honey makes the perfect quilt holder/hanger!!! Don't you think? I love the feet just sticking out at the bottom. Looks like the quilt might up and run. This picture shows off all the different greens and browns better.

it makes my head hurt to think you quilted that by hand :] YIKES! It looks SO good :) I love crop fields and farms too...but I think I have the idea of that life quite romanticized in my mind, especially after talking to some of the farmers around here who've gone through the drought the last few years and are STRUGGLING! So I go support them and pick their strawberries and peaches ;)
