This year, due to circumstances, my friend and I ended up with the box I had prepared for my swap partner last year. The fabrics the original intendee had chosen were snowmen and red/white fabrics.
So we decided to challenge each other to make something from them this year. It only has to be a top, not a finished quilt.
In looking through the most recent Hancock's of Paducah catalog I found inspiration for the Red on White and White on Red prints that I had bought. It is the Near and Deer quilt that you can see by clicking here. To the right is my interpretation of the layout for it that I've come up with in colors. The sketch isn't full size, but gives the idea of how I'm envisioning this quilt to look when finished.
I'm planning on donating the finished quilt top to American Heroes, hence the color scheme.
1. Beautiful, warm weather
2. Good suggestions for places to hike reasonably close to where I live from friends here in the area
