This is my 12" square done for a challenge with the 12 by the Dozen group (www.12bythedozen.blogspot.com)
The theme was fragments and I was attempting to get a Lauren Harris look for one of my photographs.
This quilt was a mystery quilt that Andrea presented to our guild this past year. As she always does, the instructions were clear and there were enough hints that we could do a good job with the colour.
We spent the first part of September down east. The overnight train to Halifax was great - nice elegant dinner, a room in the Park car with the dome, and met some nice people. The scenery was interesting - but a lot of it was through the woods and nary a moose to be seen.
After 3 days in the city we drove to Cape Breton and spent 6 days there. Loved the scenery and the people we met. The fish and seafood were great too - not a speck of meat for me (well, except for brekkie bacon) the whole time, and lots of lovely lobster rolls. A great one at the Acadian in Cheticamp!

|Rusting cannonballs at Fort Louisbourg. The whole place was a magnificent restoration of the fort as it was in the 1740s.|
