Beautiful Mary.  I love your choice of yellow to offset the black and grey.  Very effective.  Thanks for sharing.

I love the fabrics.  From the view in the window, it appears you may not be too far from Alaska, at least in the Pacific Northwest?

While I enjoyed visiting Alaska I certainly don't live there.  My youngest brother's sister-in-law however lives in Sarah Palin's town of Wassillia?  I actually live just south of the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland.  The tree that you can see in the window started out as a small blue spruce in a bucket.  My husband purchased it for five dollars at a yard sale.  It is probably 20 feet high now.

I always make it a point to visit any quilt shop I can find on our travels.  That quilt was made from blocks of preprinted fabric with the animals native to Alaska.  I added the sashings etc.  The black animals in the border are actually from a Tupperware children's stencil. I used a black fabric laudry marker to make them.  Everything is quilted in the ditch to make it look like applique.
