Blogger's Quilt Festival

This is a great idea.


I've decided to join in.

The story I want to tell, I have already told before on this blog.
So, if you click on this link, you'll see all about my Grandmother's 'Grandmothers Flower Garden' quilt.
(Is that cheating?)

Cheers,
Andi :-)

Great story about your favorite quilt. Thank you for your nice comment on my pinwheel star quilt on my blog.

My favorite thing about that quilt of your grandmama's is that you put that patch on the to commemorate her work, and yours.

There IS nothing like hand quilting. The only quilt I have NOT hand quilted is the one I showed on the quilt festival. I had to have it done on machine because of the size and time restraints. Also, I figured the "pattern" was nothing to frame up, since it was just 5" patches in randomness.

Lovely, just lovely. Your grandmama would be so pleased to know you are still using that lovely quilt, and now making one for your own daughter.
