Its on again! The second annual Quilt Festival hosted by the lovely Amy from Park City Girl. I played along last year, my name is on the list, but I have trawled back through my blog and I can't find the post! Odd... so I can't remember last years favorite quilt! *edited to add 24 hours later..... Thanks Kit! For some reason I was looking in last years posts, not earlier this year. doh! So for the record, this was the quilt I featured last time here.* Anyway......
This year I picked this one. I called it Bricks and Mortar, it was from a pattern. Started in late July and finished in August 2008. I love it cause it was the first quilt I made for me. And I love it cause it took me two weeks from cutting to sewing the label on, the top took 24 hours to sew. I remember the joy of Grace being at school and Milly being at her only day of day care that year, popping Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version of course!) on the DVD player and just sewing, sewing,sewing!
The label says its for me, so I can't give it away!
I like how the business of the prints just speak for themselves.
Stipple with rainbow verigated thread.
And the back of pieced strips. As I write now the girls are snuggled under it on the couch watching morning TV. Might take advantage of the quiet and check out some of the quilts at Amy's festival. Great start to the day.
