This quilt was made from the Links pattern by Dereck Lockwood. I bought a kit at Heritage Designs in Amana, Iowa. I think it turned out beautiful.
There is a funny story behind this quilt. My family was travelling from Wisconsin to Oklahoma over Christmas. I had read about Heritage Designs in a magazine and wanted to stop. My husband however is one of the get on the road and keep on going people so instead of making the suggestion we detour, I quietly set the GPS to go to Amana. When we got to the Amana area we had to switch highways anyway so he obediently followed the GPS instructions. By the time he questioned "where the heck is this thing sending us?" we were almost there. Fortunately he found my little trick funny and while I shopped he admired the sample of the Links quilt they had hanging in the store. When I was ready to check out he suggested I add the kit to my purchases. I gladly did and finished it for him in time for Valentine's Day.
