    The Great Outdoors - In a Box- Done! 2nd try

    I quilted this for a dear friend... who I've know since I was 14 years old... for Christmas.
    The pattern is called Boxed Squares..(which I found at www.maryquilts.com It's made from 1 jelly roll and the back is a disappearing 4 patch pattern made from layer cake pieces left over from a quilt I made in the same fabric line.
    Fabric line is Classics by Holly Taylor... by Moda.

    1st quilt done on my new HQ Avanta . a large meander. I love this machine.

    This will be my 2nd try at posting photos. Hope I can get them to post this time.

    Hope you all like it.

    Great pattern and great fabric - I have the same fabric and have made quilts for my father-in-law, my dad and still have some left - I love this quilt.

    Both sides of your quilt look great. Wonderful color choices.

    Very nice quilt.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Thank you all... It really went together quick... and with the new HQ I think it only took me about 2 hours to quilt it. (And it was my 1st official quilt on my new machine.) Better than fighting it through the 6 3/4" throat space I have on my Old Bernina.
