Doll Quilt from Terry in Indiana
This the quilt that I have received from Terry, my October partner in the Doll Quilters' Monthly swap.
The theme was to show where we live, so Terry chose covered bridges because she lives in an area where there are many to be seen.
The central panel is a section showing the entrance to a bridge. Although we don't have covered wooden bridges over rivers in this country, this detail does remind me of the bridges at old railway stations. They had to be covered, otherwise the passengers would have been enveloped in smoke from the steam engines.
Terry tells me that they have many craft fairs in the autumn in the areas where the bridges are. The bridges must be a lovely sight when they are surrounded by all the colours of autumn.
I love the combination of the dark greens and bold red - it definitely gives the feeling of Christmas being on the way!
Thank you Terry! You have been a lovely partner.
