My version of the Alaska quilt is a finished top!
Alaska quilt top, 63.5" x 81.5"
my variation of a pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts
Even before the announcement of a quilt-along to make the Alaska Rainbow Quilt at Laundry Basket Quilts, I had been intrigued by the possibilities of this pattern. It is a beautiful variation on a traditional kaleidoscope design. I decided to make mine using autumn colors. Here's a closer shot of the center so you can get a better look at the fabrics.
The pattern made a quilt that measures 63" square before borders. I did a little redesigning, adding an extra row of blocks at the top and bottom to make my quilt rectangular.
The Alaska Rainbow quilt along is still going on at Laundry Basket Quilts. You can also buy different versions of the pattern or precut kits at their website.
Finishing this quilt top was my One Monthly Goal for November. I will link up at Elm Street Quilts at the end of the month.
Linking up with:
Needle & Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation
Finished or Not Friday at Alycia Quilts

Happy quilting everyone!
