I just found out about the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Parkcitygirl. Simple enough to participate, I need to write/blog about my favorite quilt. I have many! Not only the quilts I have made, but the ones given to me as gifts and the ones I have bought and in some cases, rescued from the trash heap! To narrow it down, I am featuring my favorite that I have made (so far).
This is my Crazy Quilt. I made it last year (2008). I started piecing the squares in between projects. I just needed something to do, and I had a ton of scraps. I foundation pieced it, randomly cutting shapes as I pulled them out of my scrap bin. I used a dark brown with black dimple pattern for the sashing. And this was the first quilt my Mom quilted on her longarm! She was quite intimidated by the machine, so I told told her to use this as practice. She did a great job! I love this quilt because she and I both worked on it, and I love the bright colors of the fabrics I used. It is fun to see the pieces and remember the original quilt the fabric was purchased for. My hubby and I keep this on the foot of our bed and used it often!
Be sure to visit Parkcitygirl and see all the quilts in the festival!
