Lori's Quilt of Learning

There's a lot of quilting going on in Alberta these days it seems!  These pictures are from Lori-Lynn Slack of James River Bridge showing her prize winning Quilt Of Learning.
Lori made the quilt for a very special granddaughter and added a lot of fun touches.  In the picture above you can see she has jazzed up the top and bottom borders.  She has quilted words beginning with the appropriate letter in each block such as "Ice Cream" and "Island" around the I.
 Naturally, G has "Grandpa" and "Grandma" :)
Lori entered the quilt in a local show where she won a second place ribbon.  Way to go, Lori!  I love what she put on the back.

Super fun, and I know your granddaughter will love it! You can download the pattern instantly or order a printed version to be mailed to you from my website.  Kits for the quilt using Trend-Tex precuts of Stof fabrics can be found in quilt shops across Canada including Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium here in Amherst.
