Landscape Quilt, finished!

I have been waiting an entire week to post these photos (last update here), but wanted Jennifer (you can read her reaction to the quilt on her blog: Miller Musings) to be the first to see it.  Now that she's had it for a couple of days, I'm happy to share the photos with everyone else :-)

The front

A close up of some of the hills to see the quilting detail  The pumpkins were my favorite!  The hills were layered onto each other (from the mountains down) doing raw-edge style applique.  I love that it gives them more depth.

Close up of the sky.  There are two types of white fabric--plain white and a slight off-white with pale blue images from Peter Rabbit.  You can also see how I used a satin stitch to attach the mountains to the sky.

The fun pieced back will be a lot more entertaining to a baby/toddler.

I love that this quilt used fabric I already had in my stash!  The only thing I had to buy for the quilt was batting.  I'm so happy to have this quilt finished (my 10th this year!) and already at it's new home.  Happy Birthday Henry!  I hope you get many enjoyable years of use from this quilt :-)
