I designed and embroidered much of The Oregon Quilt while my husband and I toured the USA with our two young daughters a couple decades ago. Embroidery takes little space up so it was the perfect project to do while homeschooling our daughters with a class at the same time! It's machine sewn only on areas not visible on the quilt top itself, otherwise it is all hand stitched. It also has been heavily hand-quilted and decorated with blanket stitching, feather stitches and lots of extras to make the story of Oregon beautiful, interesting and an heirloom. It measures approximately 80" x 104". Three layers comprise it; backing, batting and top. The state seal is appliqued and so are the other items representing its symbols, info patch, fisherman, Salmon, bird, butterfly, plants, beaver, camo beaches, etc. Each corner carries a patch known as 'The Trail of the Covered Wagon' with a top banner of green and snow-capped mountains and bottom with ocean waves. Green trees trail the sides, edged with the saw tooth boarders. A hachet held banner declairs the state song with the state fish, a Chinook Salmon, flying off with the fisherman's line. This Oregon Quilt represents what the one I can make for you will look like. It will take up to a year to complete.
