The quilt is designed by Terry Burkhart and Rozan Meacham and featured in their book, "Primitive Gatherings: Quilts and Accessories."
I fell in love with this quilt when I first read about it in April, 2012, on Sweet P's blog HERE . Paulette was participating in a Quiltalong and as I watched her homespun houses become neighbourhoods, my interest in making the quilt grew and grew with each house she completed.
My Country Homecoming uses a variety of homespuns from my stash, many years old (!), and a few newer ones with some cozy flannels added for texture and warmth.
I have to be honest...the applique took me forever, even doing it by machine, but I love the punch it gives to the borders. I used some more homespun for the bias binding that I attached.
As usual, the quilting design Ange chose blended perfectly with the quilt. Can you see the swirly stars among those loops ?
It's a great day for quilting!
