Shortly after Comfort was listed as our next theme, my family went up to The Northeast Kingdom in Vermont where my husbands family have a summer house. The house is right on Lake Willouhby. It was a beautiful fall foliage trip. Every time we visit my daughters have to have the classic summer lunch of "oodles of noodles" soup and a grilled chesse. After fixing the lunch and putting it on the table my daughter took a picture of the lunch with the mountains in the background. I thought that is it- my daughter's comfort.
In starting the quilt I decided I had to make the noodles. I bought wiggly yarn but it needed to be dyed a little darker. I tea dyed the yarn for a different amounts of time using Alice's vanilla caramel tea from the goodie bag. I thought it would give a nice caramel color. I then used fabric stiffener to have the noodles hold their texture.
Now onto the quilt. I created the background , sky, mountains, lake and the deck and quilted it.
NEXT THEME- STRONG
I picked STRONG because of this past year in Boston. Boston embraced the "B STRONG" motto to help heal our city. The Red Sox team used every game to help the wounded and our community to heal. I also think the word strong can have different meanings for everyone. I look forward to seeing everyone's interpretation.
