First Annual Blogger Quilt Festival
As I was surfing blogger land, I came across this neat invitation to the "First Annual Blogger Quilt Festival". The directive was to take a picture of your favorite or special quilt, post it on your blog with an explanation about it and then post a link back.
As I thought about my quilts, I have to admit, I really like all my quilts! The one that I choose isn't any more special than the others, but I really love the colors. It was a Mystery for my Guild and we completed it in one day. Because it was a mystery, I didn't choose the colors for the quilt, but rather choose them because I like them. I love bright colors and some of them are really not what you would expect to see together. The border fabric was purchased at the 2008 AQS Puducah show at Hancocks of Puducah, in the back room. For those of you who have ever been there, you know the fun chaos that exist with oodles of quilters, pawing through oodles of fabric, looking for just the right yardage, and then when you find it, looking for more (since it is all in one yard lengths). You usually wave what you are looking for in the air and ask if anyone finds another piece to let you know. This is how I got this fabric. As a result, every time I look at the quilt, I smile with the good memories associated with it.....the fun of finding the fabric and the fun I had making it into a quilt.
