Quilt Festival 2009


What a great idea for this on line Festival. I always loved the motto "Shop on your seat, rather than your feet". This festival gives us the opportunity to connect and view in the comfort of our home. Hardest part? chosing which quilt is my favourite.


However, I think my second quilt I ever made would win. It is a lap size log cabin. Originally made for my friend's wedding gift in 1993, but then she called off the wedding and I kept the quilt...never did tell her. (she did end up getting married by the way). I remember it took me a long time to pick out the fabrics, but the ladies at the store were very patient. I always get a lot of compliments on this one, probably as it is usually on a couch in our house.
I am new to blogging so i hope through this festival I 'meet' many new quilting friends! Everyone's projects are so inspirational!
