    Alaska memories...

    I purchased the pattern for this quilt while we were in Skagway, Alaska last September. It's called "The Raven and the Box of Light". Now, I need to make one for the friends that we traveled with! On the back of it I put the date we were there and other fun info. to remember.

    Stunning! I'm picturing a B&W quilt with these Inuit patterns as blocks. You did a great job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Yes, it look like something off a totem pole from one of those Alaskan tribes. You did such a nice job with making this quilt.

    really pretty!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for all the nice comments! I just noticed that the picture looks a little wonky... It really is square, even though it doesn't look like it.

    For those of you who wanted to know, the quilt artist is Tommy Joseph, and the pattern is by Quilts with a Twist - Lisa Moore. The website is: www.rushintailor.com. No affiliation with any place or person, just a fan of the artwork!

    I love the graphic designs of the North West tribes. So neat to see a wall hanging made up. Nice way to share good memories as well.
