I started this quilt in 2010 and only work on it while at the cabin.
At Home in the Woods,
by McKenna Ryan.
It will occupy a large, blank wall at the cabin.
The only problem with working on a quilt over a period of 4 years is you do not have access to the original fabrics anymore. I have one more long block to fuse and a few accents and it will be ready for the border. What I like about her patterns is how the shapes spill into the border. The star of this quilt, in my opinion, is the Aspen Tree in the upper left border. You can only see the beginnings of it right now. Perhaps it will be a flimsy by Summer 2015.
In order to finish this project, I visited the Durango Quilt Shop. Our local little shop here in Pagosa Springs closed in March...boohoo! The Durango shop has a fabulous collection of batiks! The best thing I came home with though was a new fusible...Soft Fuse Premium. I am impressed, but have not tried it on wool yet. It is, however, extremely superior for a fusible applique project like this one. Very light weight and strong.
The cabin is the perfect place for decorating with quilts.

A Kathleen Tracy quilt draped over the staircase railing. See that big blank wall...that is where the McKenna Ryan quilt will hang.
Bear in the Woods, by Liberty Homestead alongside some of my photography. I am a wanna be wildlife photographer. LOL! The quilt hanger is by Summer Sky Creations. They do a great job at custom hangers!
Seasonal small quilts.

Hope you have enjoyed the quilt tour.
