Quilt Festival Spring 2009


Amy, from Park City Girl, is hosting an online Quilt Festival. Fun, right? My entry was an easy choice. My improv quilt. Due to the first-time experience of improv quilting I have a fondness of this quilt. No rulers, no rotary cutter, no real rules! This form of quilting is a feel-good experience and compliments both red and white wines. (Actually, I found it also goes well with a "so dirty it's filthy" martini!)

There's also a proud feeling of contribution to this quilt. The first block I created for this project was actually sent to Jacquie for Project Improv. Since sending the block I've spied it on the Flicker group. My block has the Alexander Henry Mocca flower and I love it. What a happy print.

I suppose my entry quilt is emotionally satisfying. Kinda crazy statement to make about a quilt, but there it is, in black and white.

Amazing! You know, I have a hard enough time cutting with a large board and the proper equipment.
You should be proud!

Wow, such cheery colors. I love how you display your quilts from the fence on those hangers :-) I looked further down and loved your stacked coins quilt too!

All of my quilts are in some way emotionally satisfying or I wouldn't bother making them. This one is also artistically satisfying with its great color and composition.
