Fields and Furrows

For my Project Quilting, Season 3 Week 5 project I choose a traditional Fields and Furrows quilt. (I will take better pictures in the daylight but I wanted to get this posted so it wasn't late.)

 

As soon as I read the challenge I knew what I wanted to do. I've wanted to do a log cabin for a long time and this was the perfect excuse. I am surrounded by farm land and the farmers are beginning to plow the earth. The dark rich soil against what is left of the nasty winter ground it beautiful.

 

My color letters were B, W, and I. I did a search for color names and came across a color chart on Wikipedia. I decided to go with Black, Wheat, and India Green. I love the black I had on hand. It has quit a bit of brown in it and it feels earthy. The wheat is some gingham fabric I've had for ever and the India Green was actually a left over from week 1. The green represents tractors in the field plowing up the ground. (This is John Deere country after all, the tractors had to be green.)

 

The final quilt is 32 inches square. It was created in Webster City, IA.
