Montana-Modern Quilt


This is a quilt I made for my Father-in-law from a "proprietor-made" kit I bought at a quilt show - unfortunately the kit she made had crooked cuts and some erroneous directions, so it took a little "finagling" to make it come out at least fairly straight to the eye, and the panel was a little skewed...all in all, though, it worked out fine (absolutely beautiful color scheme and fabric patterns!) and was a perfect Christmas gift for a weary family traveler visiting from Colorado!

This is a great Benartex pattern and panel by Janet Page Kessler - you can see the various combinations made from this pannel at the Benartex site: http://www.benartex.com/page/montana-modern-219.htm
I added the black border to make it a larger quilt.
I used free motion along with some straight line cris-cross stitching up the lines.
