Julie's 'Into the Woods' quilt

In Tuesday's class, Julie has been working away on her 'Into the Woods' quilt from Kathy Doughty's new book 'Mixing Quilt Elements'. We have all agreed that the black bear with the purple umbrella is the stand out star here, but there are so many quirky little pieces and they all seem to reveal themselves slowly so that the whole quilt top is still harmonious. The background fabric has ladies fishing in ponds so that it looks as though you are looking across a landscape. It is so interesting and the colours work so well together it is a piece that cannot remain unfinished. No pressure Julie, but we want to see this one finished!
