I was inspired by fellow boardmember K.P.'s posting River Trees Scrappy Christmas quilt.
I made this for my DS & DIL. Almost all of it is from my scrap stash...even used up the last of my WOW scrap bag. I did purchase the border yardage. I used the "fast 45" method for making the flying geese. The points were always just right. This is one pattern I'll make again in different color combos. The pattern was designed by Jan Magee and is available free at http://www.quiltviews.com/free-river...n-by-jan-magee.
In order to have this completed in time for our scheduled visit to DS & DIL (several states away from us), I took the plunge and had it LAQ'd through my local quilt shop. A first for me, since I'm a hand quilter. It turned out really nice with scattered leaves pattern, so I'll certainly go that route again. Unfortunately, I was so excited about the trip that I forgot to take pictures of the completed quilt after I finished binding it. Duh! Oh well, here's the top. Hope you like it. Thanks, again to K.P. for the inspiration.
