A finish - and two shameless plugs
Joe has relocated to Missoula and started his own business (here comes the first "plug"). An artist in many mediums, Joe has started "Leather and Canvas" and focuses on handmade equipment for the outdoor sports person -- particularly the fly fishing fan. He started on an old sewing machine of his mothers and scouted yard sales as he would burn up machines. Everytime we visited them in college, we found a new creation (bag, pack, jacket, charcoal drawing, nude in oils, something! - His creativity knows no bounds).
This quilt was made with a set of FQ (20) out of Valori Wells Olive Rose collection (the second plug is coming!). They were given to me by my sister a year ago at Christmas and she will not mind my telling you they were 20 FQ for $20. True story. First run fabrics and lots of fun. If you have never checked out Whittles Fabrics -- you must.
