I made this little quilt as a sample when I was teaching for a weekend conference put on by a quilt shop in Sudbury, Ontario. The shop wanted me to teach a project would use new fabrics that they could pre-cut and sell.
I call this piece Minneonto because one of my father's many achievements in the North Western Ontario community of LaVallee-Fort Frances area was to help bring television to the area. Relay towers were put up from Duluth Minnesota along Highway 53 north to the border town of International Falls. I remember having to use a converter for years to get a signal until CBC towers were built north of Devlin.
