Fall 2011 Blogger's Quilt Festival

For this Blogger's Quilt Festival I'm sharing a summer spread I purchased from a quilt dealer at my local quilt show. It was $50. The giant basket is full of hexagon flowers. A very fun quilt and in fairly good condition too!

Go the festival page, enter your post and win some prizes too. Thanks Amy.

Kit Lang commented that the quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival needed to be made by the poster. Hmmmm, I guess I didn't see that in the instructions. So just to be on the safe side, here's a quilt I made. As for the story, it was made from scraps of a reproduction of a lone star in the collection of the Michigan State University Museum. You can see the original here and the reproduction here. This is also a sneak peak of a quilt I'm almost finished quilting. It too is a lone star made from scraps from the reproduction. I used EQ7 to test border colors and blogged about it on June 21, 2010. When it's done and photographed I'll post it with it's EQ7 version.

Till next time.....Happy Quilting
