Default A Quilt for My Son's New Home

I purchased this kit from Keepsake Quilting and finally finished it this week. I gave it to my son for his new home. I had to hang it sideways on the clothes line to take the photo of it.
Hope you like it

Love the quilt!!! Blues with beiges & rusts is one of my favorite color combinations. What is the name of the pattern? That looks like one I would like to make.

Barb it is Smokey River from Keepsake Quilting, the fabric is all Stonehenge. The only adjustment I made to the pattern was to add a strip of beige to either side of the quilt to make the nine patch blocks at the top and bottom fit, the pattern had them chopped off to fit the quilt top.

Beautiful. I looked up the pattern. It's amazing how much prettier it is in your photo than the magazine.
