Inspired by the natural beauty of the Hudson River Valley and 19th century American folk art, this unforgettable project is a must-have for anyone who loves upstate. The translucent watercolor landscape is printed to silky cotton sateen, and mixes the golden ochre and cool misty greens of a dewy summer morning.
This special project is illustrated with dozens of embroidered pictures representing local landmarks like the Round Stone Barn of Hancock Village in the Berkshires and the sculptures of Storm King; it includes portraits of all five bridges that cross the Hudson above Bear Mountain. Even the Appalachian Trail makes an appearance as a special quilted path. Farmhouses and barns appear alongside prancing sheep and grazing cattle, forests and fields, rivers and roads.
PLACENAMES EMBROIDERED ON THE QUILT:
Hudson, Berkshires, Germantown, Copake Lake, Saugerties, Red Hook, Kingston, Rhinebeck, Hyde Park, New Paltz, Wassaic, Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Storm King, Bear Mt.
For best quilt care, machine wash cold on a gentle cycle, then tumble dry at the lowest sitting (or lay flat to air dry).
