    Here's a paper pieced Lighthouse mini quilt.
    The more I look at it the more I wish I didn't put the dark blue around the lighthouse. Oh Well

    On to the next gift
    I got the pattern from:

    I love it - ideal for a little boys room. :D
    Reminds me of a quilt cover my eldest had on his bed when he was little - he's all grown up now such a shame.

    on how large of a piece , can you use the hanger pockets on ?
    It seems you wouldnt need to permanently hang a rod up, but just a nail or two?
    Job well done...

    Thanks Grandma Cindy
    Just get a bigger dowel rod to accommodate the weight & make the pockets bigger.
    I've never hung a huge quilt yet.

    Very nice and I love the seagulls. Chairjogger said it we do have a lot of light houses on Lake Erie and that one looks like the one on Cuyahoga River (you all know the one that caught fire in the 60's)

    I like the blue border around the lighthouse. It is a needed break before the birds. It adds something so that the lighthouse is not over powered by the birds. I love your avatar. Troll dolls were one of my favorite toys as a child.
