We in Portland are so lucky to have such an amazing and talented group of quilt artists in our own back yard. The latest quilt we are happy to showcase over our fireplace is "Portland Peel" courtesy of Jill Collins.
She started with this,
then using the Portland Peel template set
she came up with this!
The Portland Peel Template Set was a collaboration between Jill at http://momstreet.blogspot.com/ and Rachel Kerley at http://2ndavenuestudio.blogspot.com/ . They've even got a downloadable PDF idea book available. If you're a local you can purchase the template set at cool cottons and save on shipping, if not, head over to www.tabslot.com and start your own Portland Peel.
Many thanks to Linda for allowing us to showcase her quilt for the last couple of months. http://www.coolcottons.biz/blog/2013/3/1/changing-out-the-fireplace-artnew-quilt-by-linda.html
And last but not least, our pay $cash$ winner for this week is Amalia R. Thanks again to all the folks helping to keep our costs down by paying cash!
