Legendary Quilt - My Version

I couldn't resist making this pattern Legendary by Elizabeth Hartman for two reasons,

My son took this picture on our visit last month to Pike's Peak...Evan is my muse and I often make quilts for and/our because of him.

And because I identify fairly strongly with the big guy - I wear size 11 women's shoes.  Yes, I am lady bigfoot...

Anyway, on to the quilty details, complete with fabric nerd info as I used some of my real favorites here and they truly look great together.  I have been trying to work within just my stash most of this year and this quilt was no exception.
Background: Moda Vanilla Grunge
Tree trunks: Benartex City Girl, Kitty Yoshida - absolutely perfect for tree trunks!!)
Tree 1 : Kaufman print by Robin Zigone
Tree 2: Windham Fabrics New Colonies, Nancy Gere
Tree 3: Benartex City Girl, Kitty Yoshida
 Tree 4: Kaffe Fasset
Tree 5: Moda Comma, Zen Chic
Tree 6: Benartex, City Girl, Kitty Yoshida
Tree 7: Moda, Comma, Zen Chic (looks like little white doves in the tree)
Tree 8: Benartex City Girl, Kitty Yoshida

Big Foot:Mary Koval from Mary's Favorite Blues
Tree 9: Denyse Schmidt, Chicopee (this print is actually grey and yellow but makes a perfect tree..my fave!)

Tree 10: Tula Pink, Prince Charming
Tree 11: Denyse Schmidt, Hope Valley
Tree12: Moda, Comma, Zen Chic


Tree 12 labeled above
Tree 13: Moda Bella Solid, Pistachio
Tree 14: Denyse Schmidt,Hope Valley 

The finished quilt top.  I am very happy with the color play here, may have to do another quilt with these fabrics...now to quilt it.

Awe that turned out fabulous. I saw that pattern and thought about it because my family was from such a remote area, it was a tale often told of.
