Oh Deere & DGS May

Jessica made yet another one of these Oh Deere! quilts as requested by a customer.  I bet she has gotten pretty efficient at this pattern, she's done it a dozen times already!  

But I haven't gotten tired of quilting it yet :)  Because I think just about any design goes with it.  It's contemporary yet nature-y, so I think you could quilt it either way.  Or a mix of the two, which is kind of the way this one went.  Feathers, leaves and swirls.

These are my blocks for do.Good Stitches Haven group for May.  Sara let us pick our own blocks to make into a sampler quilt.  She gave us a nice palate of colors to use- lime green, aqua, navy, red-violet, raspberry, mustard yellow- and solid white for background.  I thought I would try a new block that I've been wanting to attempt, but ended up staying in my comfort zone and doing all blocks that I have done before.  The first is called Christmas Star, the second a dresden plate, and the third bonus block is just a scrappy improv block I threw together.
