There are many things I love about the state of Idaho. The scenery in Idaho is beautiful. Idaho is the potato state, but more than potatoes it’s also home to the Snake River, it is the home of many hot springs that you can lavish away the day in, Evil Kneival tried and failed to jump over the Snake Canyon in Twin Falls, back in 1974, is home to the two deepest canyons in the USA, it is also home to Craters Of The Moon, an amazing monument created out of actual molten lava, has more whitewater than any other state in the lower 48 states, is a very close drive to Yellowstone National Park, but the best thing about Idaho.. I was raised in Idaho Falls, and while I don’t really think I had the best childhood experiences, I consider it my home.
I’ve always been intrigued by waterfalls, for as long as I can remember. When I was trying to decide what to do for my row, it really just made sense to me to do the one place in the world that I love the most and that is Idaho Falls. The falls may be small, but they hold memories that last a lifetime.
So let’s get to the knitty and the gritty. my row today is 12 x 30. It consists of piecing and applique. Imagine that, I designed something with some piecing in it…
The pdf consists of 48 pages, it is the most extensive pattern I have ever written, with how to’s and directions on working with directional fabrics.
and this is my row stitched out
The rocks are fussy cut from a novelty print and other than the sky, this row was entirely cut on my Brother SNC cutting machine.
This is the first project I’ve also used raw edge applique on, I changed back and forth between a zigzag stitch and a straight stitch. When I do the trees, I will stitch the trees shapes in with the quilting.
Soft Fuse was used in the water shapes with the technique that uses the 1/4-cuts around the edges so that the rest of the shape is free to move as it likes.
The trees, rocks, grass are all entirely fused in place with Soft Fuse.
It is only available in my Craftsy shop and I will not email patterns to anyone.
Do not use small cellular devices to download it, it is a zipped file with the pdf and the cutting files included in the zip file.
The zip file is a 24mb file.
This will be a free download thru at least the end of October 2016.
