Bloggers Quilt Festival 2009...



This morning I read about a "Virtual Quilt Festival" being hosted by Park City Girl.



This is one of my favorite quilts that I made for a gift...The center squares had been signed by there family members and a block was saved for the theme of the quilt ( 50 th Anniversary).

I think they were very surprised when they open the box...also I have been told that they had showed everybody they seen...When I visited during the summer I seen that it was draped over a rocking chair for everyone to see...I am very glad they enjoyed they work I put in it and the colors and sentiments...


Here is a link to the blog that started me on this posting:...http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/2009/04/quilt-festival-spring-2009.html
