Thanks to Amy for hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival.
As a first-time entrant, I am excited to be part of something this big.
So, here is my quilt.
I finished this quilt in 2009, I think. Yes, as a fairly new quilter I am still learning about records and labels and such things.
Anyway, it started out as batik scraps leftover from the back of a previous quilt. I liked the scraps so much I sort of kept them together and looked at them for about 2 years. Finally this idea came to mind.
It is a basic four patch with sashing. The leaves were machine appliqued to the quilt by my friend Tawni. To accomplish this the quilt had to be mailed to Alaska and back. Finally it was machine quilted by Tara. With so many other people involved, can it really be called my quilt? Maybe this is a sort of modern quilting bee?
I don’t know, but it is one of only two quilts I have made and kept (in spite of my husband’s candid opinion that it is the ugliest quilt have ever made). I keep thinking it might really belong to someone else, but haven’t found the perfect home for it yet. Something this bright will take a very special owner.
Thanks for visiting and reading my story. I hope you’ll consider coming by again.
