Canoe Country

I have been working hard on the quilting for a queen size quilt from the Canoe Country line by Moda.  I finished the quilt top about a year ago, but I wanted to give it as a gift while I was on vacation this past week, so I had to hurry up and quilt! 

Working on a queen size quilt in a  house trailer is a bit of a tight squeeze, but I made it work.

I chose to use mainly stippling throughout the quilt.


I was happy with how the quilting turned out.



It even looks neat from the back!



I had also made two throw pillow covers to match the quilt!


I took a few pictures of the full set at my house,


But the best effect comes when you get to see the quilt in its new home!


This quilt is just perfect for the cabin that it was made for. 


My aunt was so happy with her new quilt.  She was extremely surprised by the gift and I just loved seeing her reaction.  That's my favorite part, seeing reactions to a quilt I've just finished. 
This is my aunt and I with her beautiful new Canoe Country quilt.


The rest of our vacation was great too.  We swam, watched the birds, went for a walk, and mainly just relaxed.  A perfect getaway with a wonderful quilty icing on the cake!
