Lighthouses and Bridges, oh, my!


The quilt is off the frame and through the washer and dryer;
I am glad to see it come through to the end because I was not happy with my idea of a mariner's compass as a design for each block.
Skill not idea is to blame.
I will have to work on ruler talents to get a better line next time! 
 There are so many interesting landmarks;  I really like having this quilt  ready for use!
 Even the borders and bindings are a nice restful color and accents the whole.
I did buy this as a kit to set off my blocks.
The designer did a great job.
I did add the extra blocks I collected to the backing so there is a nice surprise if the quilt gets flipped over!
