  1. Lava Lanes

    by , 09-23-2012 at 04:14 AM
    Baby quilt I made for my grandson. I called it Lava Lanes after the bowling alley in Medford, Oregon. The colors on the floor and walls there are wild. Also, there is a picture of his mom and dad before Theo was even considered at Lava Lanes!

    The mandala is a pattern called Almaaz, I bought it from eQuiltpatterns. Paper pieced and way easier than it looks!

This will be between seeing the exhibit and shopping in the museum store. It should be a blast!
