This is Cody's Christmas gift. Kristina suggested that the 3 children could all use new quilts for Christmas. I had the fabric in my stash and I bought the black border fabric while we were in PEI. It works really well with the other fabrics.
This is the back. I used up every piece of fabric I had and then had to search out some more. I found the centre pieces in a box and as they were close enough to the theme I put them down the centre. They were suppose to be for another quilt years ago, but it never even got started.
I put two in one direction and the other in the opposite. This quilt's design doesn't mean in has to be one way or the other. I think that's why I like it so much.
When it came time to pressing the seams I pressed them open. With all of the seams in the top, I knew there could be some problems if they all came together. This wasn't how I was taught to do it, but my new LA does it this way, and I'm trying to learn to do it the way she prefers.
Algonquin Park since he was a wee lad. He has seen bears and their cubs, his Mom kept him up late one night so they could go down to the Lake to see the night sky, so all of this is part of his camping life.
