Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am joining the Blogger's Quilt Festival! Click the icon below for more information.
And here is the quilt I am featuring. I was never very impressed with embroidery until I saw some of the Australian designers. Then I was sold! Rosalie Quinlan, who designed this quilt is one of my absolute favorites. I love her whimsical fresh style. As soon as I saw this quilt, Little Patchwork Village, I knew I had to do it. I began the houses last year and one thing or another kept getting in my way. I decided this would be the year for UFOs and this is one of my now completed UFOs. I'm so proud it's done and I absolutely love it. It is for my daughter who loves all things pink. I am ashamed to admit she had a store bought quilt (shudder) hanging on her wall. It was bought some time ago before I new how to quilt and I have just never gotten around to replacing it. Well guess what? It's off to Goodwill and this beauty is hanging in it's place. Excuse my lopsided picture. I was burning dinner while shooting it. :0)

I have finished a few t-shirt quilts and a reproduction quilt from a former McCall's magazine.
This t-shirt quilt is HUGE! It has 103 shirts in the quilt and finished at 91 x 100. It's big in terms of t-shirt quilts but actually it's a queen size quilt. Very random and very fun.

This is a nine patch I finished recently in reproduction fabrics. The pattern was from a McCall's magazine. I'll have to look up the reference to be sure which one. . .

This a t-shirt picture quilt for another customer

This t-shirt quilt was created for Strides of March/Chattanooga Cares which is an organization raising money for AIDS research.
