Legendary Finish


I finished my son's Christmas present quilt this weekend...if you want the info on the pattern, see my previous post and/or this link: this pattern Legendary by Elizabeth Hartman

I quilted with my usual organic straight line quilting and am happy with the outcome :)  This pattern was very straight forward and well-written, a pleasure to sew!

My need to make this for my son was cemented when we visited Pike's Peak a couple of months ago and saw this sign...hopefully this quilt will give him happy memories of our trip.
