Kathy from Tamarack Shack has just blogged about my Smokey River... a quilt I made for our biking friends! T&F wanted this quilt to fit their bed so I had to improvise to make it fit their specs. It took a few weeks to complete but I'm thrilled with the results.
The backing is pieced from the yardage!
Kathy's quilting is superb! She was so generous in putting Smokey on her very busy schedule before she breaks for summer vacation. I've been following her blog from behind the scenes for a long time and have admired her beautiful quilting as well as her photography! Have you seen where/how she photographs her quilts in winter??? AMAZING shots!!!
Head on over to Tamarack Shack to see it!!! Isn't it beautiful??
Thank you Kathy... there's no way this BIG quilt would have fit my machine... You are my inspiration! And my lifesaver! I hope someday to be a smidgen as great a longarmer as you!
A MILLION THANKS!
