It's time for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival! As you probably know, the International Quilt Festival is being held in Houston this week. Several of my "in real life" friends fly every year to this huge event, but I have never been. They always come back telling me about the quilts and all of the many vendors that are there. There's always some new gadget or new fabric lines they come home with.
I may not be able to go to Houston, but because of Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival I can look at quilts, shop with vendors, and (this is the best part) have a quilt "shown"! I"ve never had a quilt hang in a huge quilt show, and this quilt show is HUGE!!!
So, here's my entry.
I flung this over my cedar fence to shoot it's picture. My oldest daughter is holding on to it for me; she's the fingers at the top. The name of this quilt is Harvest Time. It is designed by Lynette Jensen of Thimbleberries. The pattern used to be sold seperately, but it is also in one of her books, Classic Collection of Quilts. I used Thimbleberries fabric and some fabrics from Jo Morton.
I have an area over my couch where I hang seasonal quilts. This one will hang during the months of September and November. During the Spring, I hang a quilt that I "showed" during Amy's spring Blogger's Quilt Festival. You can see it here.
My best friend, Terry, machine quilted this quilt for me on her Gammil. She free motion quilted all of the swirls, feathers, and everything that makes this quilt gorgeous.
