This blog is the collision of my hobbies (scrapbooking & quilting) as well as my professional interests.

I took the quilt top to Arlene and was able to pick it up when in Victoria in February. I started the quilt back in 2012 and took a few months to complete the blocks, add to that traveling back and forth between ON and BC it was a bit longer in completion than normal.

Arlene did a fine job on coming up with a quilt pattern to make the quilt pop. I know we debated for a bit on what pattern to use as the quilt was looking pretty flat in its initial state. But I have to say it looks fantastic.
I backed the quilt in cotton from Connecting Threads. It has a bit of an Asian feel to it that I thought would work well with the quilt top.
