Welcome to my part of the online Quilt Festival-Spring 2009. Amy was the gal behind this brilliant idea. Our own online quilt show with prizes... After reading this you can click on her name and head over to her blog. There is a Mr Linky with many many many quilters showing their favorite quilt...
My favorite quilt hangs on my living room wall. I joined Pat Sloan's yahoo group and in 2005 read about the group doing a row by row quilt swap. I was one of the last one to know about this particular swap and by the time I asked to join it was too late. UNTIL - a few days later when I got an email from the coordinator that someone had dropped out of one of the groups and could I get my row together in a week...YIKES!! YES!! I decided that houses would be my theme and quickly pulled fabric and started getting some machine applique done. WHEW! I made it and mailed my row, some extra fabric and a journal to the next person on the list. In just a few days I received an envelope in the mail and was ready to start on a row for someone else. This was so much fun. We posted photos as we went and could see our quilts getting prettier and prettier. Finally after 6 months, I got all of my rows back.... I quickly put the top together and then it sat until after we moved here in 2006. Oh, well that was only a year. For some reason I thought it was much longer, LOL
I got borders on it and sent it off to Pat (my long arm quilter) and here it is....
The rows were made by the following members
Top row - Jennifer
Second row - Margi
Third row - Cindy
Forth row - ME!
Fifth row -Joanna
Sixth and last row - Eileen
Thanks again ladies...I love it...
Thanks Amy, for this wonderful opportunity to meet new quilters and see their quilts.
