Alaska Flowers and Berries Quilt Top

Yikes, it's been awhile since I posted.  I have no excuses.  I have another UFO finish.  This project was #7 on my list of projects to finish here.  It still needs a border but I think that will be the easy part.  My real finish should have been the OMG for November, but I am on vacation and I realize I don't have a photo of it.  Bummer. 

The pattern for this quilt top comes from Wildfire Designs by Alaska quilt designer Dana Michelle.  The pattern uses Hoffman Batiks and specifies the color number for each piece.  I It's a modified rendition of the pattern because I just wanted to do the flowers and berries from the Southeast Panhandle region where I live.  I also used the colors of the plants in our region.  The Indian Paint Brush is yellow in the pattern but ours are orange red.  The columbine in pink in the pattern but ours our orange.  Alaska is a giant state with completely different climates from region to region and different kinds of plants thrive in different areas.  

 I keep pecking away at my weekend finds and feeling very satisfied with my finishes.  I have also made time to work on a few new projects too.  I am having fun with my 10 inch square patterns and will post them as I finish them.

  1. What a beauty, you must be so pleased with the quilt top. We had a brief 7 days in Juneau quite some years ago while en route from New Zealand to England. It was mid summer and so nice and warm.

  2. What a gorgeous quilt - I love it! So good to personalize it with your own colors. Perfect!
