Karla, this was last year's quilt at the charity auction and it went for $125 I think.Or was it $175. Don't remember for sure. I've made two others since then for the same goat rescue organization. I've finished another quilt for their November auction but this one has chickens on it. I think I posted a picture in my gallery.

Well, so far I have cut out all of the pieces for this quilt and I am ready to assemble it.  However, I cannot seem to figure out how the background is sewn together.  The pattern says to match the pattern pieces at the marks which I can do but won't that leave a raw edge?.  And, as you know the 4 background pieces have curves in them.  How did you sew the background together?  Do you just overlap the two pieces by 1/4" (right sides up) and sew them?  I don't want a raw edge showing so would I put a decorative stitch over the "seam?"

Sorry to be so dense on this one but I am lost...thanks!

Tammany:

I had trouble with this step. Use the supplied patterns. Be sure to print them full size if you haven't already done so. You'll need to tape the pieces together.

I taped a piece of fabric to each of the background pattern pieces and marked them 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. That helped keep my brain on the straight and narrow.  Lay on the fabrics you want to use, pin and carefully cut out. These are on the bias so handle with care. You will then put the corresponding pieces to right sides together and sew a 1/4" seam that meandering seam. Clip the curves as needed to make it lay flat.

It's awkward.

The tree and the rug the goats are standing on are appliqued on.  

Does this help?

Tammany, you could also simply applique the background accents. Cut the light gray and appliqee the darker gray pieces.
