Well I have finally finished my sample of the beautiful Portage Lake Block of the Month quilt by Minick & Simpson. I first saw the quilt at Spring market in Salt lake City and knew that I wanted needed to make it! So I ordered the patterns and started work on it early September and on Friday I stitched the last blocks.
It is now with Wendy being quilted and I can't wait to get it back and get the binding on!
I will be running it as a Block of the Month, which will start in January.The fabrics that I have used are from the 'Grand Traverse Bay' and 'Miss Scarlet' fabric ranges as well as some other Minick & Simpson fabrics. The fabrics provided in the BOM are the same as the ones that I have used in my sample, but not identical to the ones in the original quilt......but you really cannot tell the difference.

The quilt measures 64" x 84" and is a 12 month program. The cost per month is $30 (plus p&h if required) and there are limited places available, so if you would like to put your name down please contact me as soon as possible. Also available online here.
