This is a quilt I just finished, the pattern is called crossed-canoes. The fabrics for the blocks are a blueberry print, one with a cream background and the other with a black background.

This quilt pattern is on my list. I think yours is the prettiest I have seen - very good color and fabric choice. The contrast is perfect. I love it.
Thanks for posting the picture.

That's a very old, classic pattern and you've really done it justice. I love your color choices. Good job.

Karlene, how pretty! I was familiar with the block, but I don't think I've seen a whole quilt of it. I really like it!

Thank you all. I found the 2 blueberry fabrics at a thrift store so I went looking for a pattern to use 2 fabrics in. Even though the print is small, it looked too busy to have the blocks side-by-side so I put the sashing in, and then I got excited about it when I added the borders - I'm not sure why, but working with those colors just made me happy.

Like Donna, I have seen the pattern, but have not seen a whole quilt done with it. I liked the patern quite a bit before, but seeing your quilt makes me sure this is something that I'd like to do "someday." Nice job!
