    I just need to find the perfect border fabric now...I had a deadline to get this far as this Sunday...whew...made it. We're heading west to Alaska on a road trip Monday morning and I'm taking this with me...it'll be my excuse to stop at "several" quilt shops along the way. (Palmer, Anchorage, Fairbanks)

    The pattern is called Counterpoint and it's by Mountain Peek Creations.
