Chair Covers

While on our great vacation this summer I stopped at several quilt shops starting in the Amana Colonies IA and ending in Alaska. They just had a few more wildlife fabrics. While buying the fabrics I was thinking about a lap quilt or comforter, but when I got home the adirondack chairs needed softening up and the answer ended up being wildlife fabrics on one side and a pretty floral that I got at Joanne Fabrics for the other side. It didn't take long, it was just a matter of squeezing a few minutes here and a few minutes there, okay maybe it was a few hours here and there. Anyway, I was very pleased with the outcome. I did four chairs.

It doesn't show up too well, but the square in the middle top has a log cabin on one the others have a bear, wolf and deer. They have a kind of patchwork design.

As with any project I'm glad they're finished and can't wait to start another.

Beautiful work as always. How nice it must be to be crafty. That's one talent I lack. What a great way to remember you amazing trip to Alaska.
