    Up North













    Wanted to share the queen size quilt I made December 2012. It is my first bona fide scrappy. It is a Thimbleberries pattern entitled "Up North" I had to add two additional rows to make it wide enough. A special thanks to JenniePenny who was my personal cheerleader and mentor through the process. She even was kind enough to send me some fabric to include if I wished. Needless to say, the warmth of her friendship made the quilt even more cozy and memorable to me. The fabric I had leftover from this project I turned into a large lap quilt. I will post when it comes back from the LAQ, who also did this quilt. She is a local lady named Betty Sue who I think did a lovely job. Thanks for looking.

    Beautiful quilt. It is so nice to hear about the encouragement your friend gave you to continue your quilt and finish it.

    Makes me want to snuggle up in front of a fire in a cabin in the woods. :-) Good job.
