Louisiana Traveling Quilt #2 - Ramona's Louisiana Themed Quilt

I am so much in love with the derrick idea that I had to use it on Ramona's quilt as well.  It is a Louisiana theme as well, you know.

So I did work on it some yesterday.  An finished it up in my guild's Sew Along Saturday meeting today.

I knew that white would not work with Ramona's neutrals dominant quilt top.  I chose a taupe-y grey-ish beige-ish dot piece to act as background for my oilfield.  And it is amazing how it blends with the quilt.  !

After we hit oil!
So this is how it came to me.  I thought to put  the derrick on the lower left corner to balance the long narrow drips on the uppper right corner.

So what do you think? I am thinking the person next can do some oil drops spouting out the top of my well, or maybe a flame since they do flare the natural gasses off the wells before they pump out
some black gold!

That is an amazing map block,my favorite  of the quilt......not counting my oil derrick, of course!

  1. Your derrick came out great! One question, did you make all the units the same and then just trim them to get the derrick wider at the bottom and narrower at the top?


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
