Grand Manan

Monday,July 29, 2013
Last week I took a little vacation away from the quilting world and took the Grand MananV  ferry to the lovely island of Grand Manan. We watched the ferry as it arrived at Black's Harbour. Below,you can see the Swallowtail lighthouse which stands proudly on the cliff as a beacon to show that you are nearly to the island. As we rounded the bend , the dock at North Head, Grand Manan comes into view. Our vacation was very relaxing although it was hard to get quilts out of my mind while I was there.

The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful from our cottages porch and the color combinations in the sky can't help me but think of all the nice color combinations to quilt from.
Here we are up on the cliffs of Southwest Head looking out over the Bay of Fundy at the water below. It is a good feeding ground for Northern Right whales and if you look carefully you may spot them in the distance.
Our quilt today is the "Disappearing Nine-Patch '' quilt. Bev has done a nice job on this small child's quilt. It measures 39"x 52" and has an all over 4 inch butterfly pattern over it. .

A soft Minke fabric was used for the back of this quilt. The little butterflies seem to just dance all over this charming little quilt.
