The Road Home Row Along

Hello!  It’s finally my day for the Road Home Row Along!

stbs-Road-Home-long-banner-1-151x300

This Row along is hosted by Seams to be Sew and Sew Incredibly Crazy.  The idea is to create a row that reminds you of home!  I chose to do my row about Maine. And since I was working on this all summer, and the campers have been on the road… I took that as good inspiration!

 The Way Life Should Be

To represent Maine I included:

One of the Maine slogans (of course!), blueberries, northern lights (stars), Pine trees, chickadee, and the moose!

I made my row using some cotton applique and some wool applique, but use your own preferences.

I had dmc floss and perle cotton 12 to make a basic blanket stitch for most of the applique. And I added some bullion knots in a few places for fun ~ see around the tire and windows?

When I got to the clothes line, i stitched a basic back stitch,camper applique quilt pattern

and then wove it in both directions with the long tail of the perle cotton to make it look more substantial and like a woven clothesline.

If you use the eye end of the needle to weave it through, it’s much easier!

    What a delightful row! I have to ask…are you still in Maine? I see Madawaska Mittens on your side board…that’s way up there! I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Caribou in the past. Originally from Cape Elizabeth, then Augusta, I visit Maine twice a year now as I pass through New England on my way back and forth from Tx to Nova Scotia. I would love to win your pattern. I’ve been admiring it as it’s grown! Have a happy day! ~karen

I was going to investigate your BOM when I saw the post under this one, so that would be my choice, if I won, though any of the prizes are lovely. I don’t have an embroidery machine, though. I’m going to peruse your blog more now.

  26. Mary C

  30. Marian Pena

    This is such a wonderful row, makes me want to go camping again. I have fond memories of my childhood when we use to do that then into the early years of my marriage, heading out for the weekend just having some fun at the lake, and parks and staying overnight in the wilderness. So this row brings memories to all of us who love camping. Thank you for the great memory. I’m also really happy you joined us for The Road Home, as an admirer of your patterns and your previous botms, I was genuinely happy when you chose to join us for this fun event.

    In my earlier comment I did not mention that my Bernina 830 would love the embroidery design CD – and I would too.

  57. LJ

    The coloring book would be an awesome gift for 14 year old granddaughter! When I think of Maine, I think of trees, fishing, and insect repellent–lol, probably comes from reading certain mysteries. The use of wool for the applique is a great idea! Thanks!

  62. drakesneststudios

You make it very hard to choose as yours Dear Daughter QAL looks intriguing. Should I be a winner, I’ll let you surprise me as I would be happy with any of the offerings. Thanks so much for sharing your delightful row. All the designers are so talented. This will be one interesting quilt when completed.

  63. Deonn
