This brilliant quilt is Minkee, velvety dense color, and soooooooooooooooooo touchable. To make this quilt, I enlarged the continuous line designs that put the moose family in the swamp under willow tree branches, and enlarged the continuous line designs that put the crane and ducks in the pond.

This is where it all starts for me.
