A Yorkshire Dream
This was a quilt challange for the end of year 2011 Xmas Party at my quilting group. The challenge was to make a quilt that depicted your birthday. The only criteria was to use the colour of my birthstone (either a lot or a little)
Everything was going as expected but without a pattern, I was unsure how to create the hills I had in mind. Next step was to google for a picture of hills that would suit my image.....
I think I found the right one and so now to add the hills to the picture....not sure if I used the best method for this but I just went with my instinct and it turned out ok.

And a fence and then comes the bit that I was dreading the most..............freemotion quilting!!! I was sure I would ruin it at this stage.

|These trees were a last addition but necessary to hide an oopsie....quilted with little pebbles and look great...so far so good!|
|the raw edge applique horses....just magical! what a clever sewing machine I have!|
And here it is. I got 3rd place for my little quilt and was really chuffed as this was my first ever quilt challenge entry and it has become a "Treasure" to me.
All the clues are here, wonder if you can decipher the month and year of my birth date?
