Thanks for sharing that! It is a great quilt and a great reminder that I need to get my holiday projects started (I don't know when...sigh).

Beautiful quilt gives me an idea for a window covering as my kitchen window now looks into another window. so sad the alfalfa field is disappearing.

Hi there - Love that pattern - does anyone know what it is called or where to get it? I feel like I saw it in a quilt magazine but can't remember which one. Beautiful and simple and very striking? Thanks.
