This is Lynn’s Alternate Routes quilt and she chose one of the layouts in our pattern. She liked this layout as it had a Aztec feel and that is what her two batiks fabrics reminded her of. I quilted it with the Dazzle panto and used Dream Blend batting. It is nice to see that this pattern is still selling well on our Etsy and Craftsy sites, you can find the pattern here.
With all the snow that has fallen in the last week on top of a thin 4 inch layer of ice, throw in one warm day and we have a big slushy mess in our bay. Holes in the ice were forming, you can see one in the second photos to the right, so the water was just percolating up onto the ice. I took the quilt pictures on Sunday and the ice pictures Monday, amazing what a difference a day can make! Don’t think I’m going to get my pretty ice rink this year but I’m not giving up hope yet.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
