No, I didn't do this quilt. My mom and her sisters made this quilt for my grandparents, but I did get to put a bit of my own handiwork into it. It came in a kit with all the fabric they would need and then they divided the work between them.
My grandparents have a beautiful cabin where we spend family reunions and this was the perfect gift for it, but it wasn't perfect. Underneath the horseshoes is a Bingo game applique. Our family plays our own games and my aunt decided she wanted to personalize it. That got me thinking. There were a lot of things on this quilt that weren't apart of our experiences at the cabin and as a family. We go fishing, ride four wheelers, do work projects, and a slew of other things.
The wonderful thing about applique quilts is that you can make your own appliques. It was super easy.
I made all of these images through Photoshop Elements and a few others. I just took basic online images and tweaked them to the way we wanted them to look. They didn't need to be fancy, it was just a template for them to cut their fabric.
And this is how it turned out and I love, love, love it!
