I loved the look of Shannon's contour design I saw over on her piecefulkwilter blog. I love everything this lady does and check out her quilt blog almost daily. She calls this her topo meander. I think it's a perfect fit for this "farming" quilt.
John Deere Tractors, green, yellow, brown and black.
The prints reminded me of tractor wheels, planted rows, and assorted fields: green- growing crops, yellow-ready to harvest, brown-ready to plant.
I quiltied the top and bottom with black thread--interesting that the thread hardly shows at all on the back, even close up. I guess the eye is too busy looking at the checkered fabric!
