After the Storm

This quilt was constructed using one of Louisa Smith's templates. The template has four curved sides, so it gave me a lot of practice sewing curved seams. It was on my design wall for about 2 years until I finally decided that I would need to finish it in order to use my wall for something else. I added the paint for the mountains and the foreground has threadwork pine trees free motion stitched onto rinse away stabilizer. I added white paint and tiny clear beads on some branches to represent early-season snowfall. I really like the irregular edge that using the templates produced.
