Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am excited to be participating for the first time in the Fall 2009 Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy at Park City Girl.


This quilt, made a few years ago, is one of my favorites. I made it from reproduction prints purchased on my trip to the Houston Quilt Festival in 2005. I brought home a lot of reproduction prints from that trip - couldn't resist. I haven't been back to Festival since, but DH has promised to take me next year... in the meantime, this quilt is a great reminder of that visit to Houston.


I also pieced the back so I could include as much of my fabric as possible.


Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Amy for hosting this event.

(I've been looking through my magazines all morning to find the one with this pattern - finally found it: Quilt Sampler, Fall/Winter 2005, p. 88, "Flying Geese Baskets" designed by Kathy Blank)

The back is as gorgoeus as the front. What a neat memory quilt to have and remember your trip and to see and look forward to the next one! Thanks for sharing!
