Panel and place mats

Good morning my friends
This morning  I am sitting here looking outside at the melting snow ...... not sure if spring is here or just teasing..... but we will take it.
The last couple of weeks have been very productive. We finished our Learn to Quilt class. It was 5 weeks full of new techniques and lots of homework. The ladies did awesome getting their blocks done. The next class on the list is a T-shirt class followed by a Pick a block Place mat class.
Pick a Block Place Mats
hand quilted and ready for class

I did get the  SK panel done for the Relay for Hope Quilt, it will be in the mail this week so that it can be added to the quilt.
 The finished quilt will be 12 feet by 12 feet. I can't wait to see if finished. It was an honor to be asked to be a part of the project. I hope they will enjoy the panel as much as I did working on it.

Let me tell you a little about the panel.....
I have created a background of a wheat field with a grain elevator, which every town had and as a kid you looked for when off to visit some family in the country. I have the geese flying in the sky as we are called the Land of the Living Skies. I have a silhouette of a RCMP on a red Maple leaf as Regina is the home of the RCMP.My friend Sheila sent me a photo of her to use for the silhouette.
Of course I included the Prairie Lily our Provincial Flower.
 The provincial abbreviation will be added in black when the quilt blocks are added to the center part of the quilt.

Thanks for spending a little of your day with me. 
Have a great Sunday and stay
