We've just heard from Krista Hennebury (award winning designer extraordinaire of Improv Under the Influence© fame, read her blog Poppyprint):
I thought you might enjoy seeing your divine fabric pictured in the Arctic beside a real honest-to-goodness igloo (okay, it was built for the Sunrise Festival welcoming back the sun on January 7th, no one is actually living in it, but it is a traditional igloo!). I was teaching Chess on the Steps in Inuvik, North West Territories in Canada's Arctic last weekend and took the opportunity to bring some quilts for show and tell, including Lynne [Goldsworthy]'s Lonestar Circle she designed for my book Make It, Take It.
ChessontheSteps in the Arctic LynnesLonestarCircle inthe Arctic You too could make Krista's fabulous modern quilt; go to her blog page to read the fascinating story behind the design, which has previously featured as a Modern Quilt Guild pattern of the month. It was inspired by an unnamed antique quilt and Krista’s interpretation is a colour study using five related warm-coloured and five related cool-coloured Colourshotts. The complete Quilt Kit containing the pre-cut fabrics and pattern is available to buy online from Oakshott Fabrics.
