Last month our quilting traveling buddies, Carolyn and Barb, surprised me with a lap quilt that they made using the Kira pattern. Last August Mary and I had traveled together with Carolyn and Barb to Iceland with the quilt designer, Gudrun from GE Designs. We got the Kira quilt pattern during our trip when we had a sew day with Icelandic quilters. Carolyn and Barb used lots of pink fabric in the quilt because I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. For the backing, they used green flannel fabric with scissors to remember our quilting trip to Ireland a few years ago. I love the design of this quilt pattern.
I made 2 squares using the Kira pattern when we were in Iceland. Carolyn, Barb, and Mary have all made “Kira” quilts since our trip to Iceland. I guess I was the “slacker” in the group but now I have my own Kira lap quilt from Carolyn and Barb. Check out GE Designs for more fun and easy patterns. Keep have fun sewing and quilting. Donna
