Is this not the coolest quilt ever? I love the piecing, the fabric choices, the applique bears and snow topped mountains. Note how the fabrics at the bottom are in browns and greens for the forest floor then the piecing subtly changes to trees and then to mountain tops and stars in blues. This was a collaboration between a mother and son. He picked everything out and she pieced it. He even came along for the quilting consultation. We chose a variegated thread with browns, greens and blues which looked like it had been made especially for this quilt and did an all over falling leaf pattern. It’s a man quilt to be sure.
