What was your inspiration?
I found the covered bridge fabric and knew it would be perfect for my father-in-law who grew up in northwestern New Brunswick where covered bridges are common.
What are you most proud of?
The improvement of my piece work and the overall appearance - I love these colours.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pick a focal fabric to coordinate your other fabrics to, measure carefully and take your time. Also, use the same fabric for the small squares and the binding.
