Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am very happy to be participating again in Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side.  This is such a great way for blogging quilters to showcase their quilts - thanks Amy.

My entry is this New York Beauty quilt I made in 2003 using as many brights and floral fabrics as I could find. The blocks were paper-pieced and the quilt was quilted on a long-arm machine.  This quilt is special to me because my husband says of all the quilts I have made this is his favourite.
I used a large bright multi-floral print for the backing.  The sleeve sewn onto the back is because this quilt once hung on display in a local quilt shop - that also makes it kinda special to me.

I'm off now to check out the hundreds of other quilts on display at Bloggers Quilt Festival.

What can I say? Stunning. I'd love to make one myself, but for some reason resist paper piecing and I know it just doesn't work the same. Congrats on the fabric choices... and on the patience dealing with all those spiky points!
