I made this quilt with fabrics I received from Virginia Spiegel as a bonus in one of the past Fiber Art For A Cause Fund Raisers.
She does not sell her fabrics, but put together a few bundles as incentives for the people who made donations..
Although Virginia has made many Boundary Waters quilts my goal was to make one that did not look like a Virginia Spiegel quilt.
I think I succeeded, and yet still evoked the feeling of the Boundary Waters.
I thought you might enjoy a close up of the quilting.
