For a while I have had images of quilt designs floating around in my head and I finally bought some fabric and got inspired to come up with my "Prairie Points of Interest" quilt. I have wanted to make a quilt that represents where I live in the Texas Panhandle. In this design the center focus blocks represent the wild vegetation that is naturally treeless, the flying geese are representative of the Canadian Geese that migrate to this area over the winter (they are everywhere, and I love it), the circles show the 'Playa Lakes' that abound in the region, the stripes are the furrows of the countless fields that are planted in corn, cotton, sunflowers, or wheat, and the open spaces convey the feeling of openness that surrounds the high plains. I intended for it to have a modern feel to it and the vertical quilting maintains that feeling. I am really pleased with it and proud of myself for doing it. I even put a label on the back, yeah!
