I was given a fat eighth pack of Wool + Needle III flannel and challenged to come up with a quilt. I remembered seeing a pattern in Doug Leko's book "Grand Portage." I knew it would be perfect, but unfortunately didn't have the book with me at retreat. I forged ahead, thinking I knew what I was doing.
I was happy with the results, but when I got home and read the book, mine is just a little different. The pattern is "Main Avenue." It called for 2 1/2" connectors, and I used 3". Oh well, just one of lives little twists!
I decided the quilting could be straight lines, echoing the design. Out came my chalk-o-liner to draw the lines and the quilting was done in record time.
Thanks to Doug for the inspiration!
I haven't finished a lot of my own quilts lately, however, I did get to quilt the one below for Bev.
It's great fun when my friends tell me to quilt what I want. Thanks Bev.
Now that spring has arrived, I've been out for a few walks with my Postie friends. This picture was taken walking south of Kamloops in the Pineview area, looking south. I love getting out and exploring nature. Unfortunately the ticks are out in full force and I had three hitchhiking on me. Tick spray is a necessity from here on out.
Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous Easter Weekend!
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday.
