Amy from Park City Girl is having a quilt festival. I'm not too familiar with all the ins and outs of it, but you can find out here. I am to post my favorite quilt of all time, and I think I will chose one that doesn't have the best picture, but is my all time favorite. I made this quilt early this year, while I was still a relatively new quilter (and didn't know anything yet) and copied one that I had seen on Flickr that was made by my now new friend, LauraJay. Hers was bigger though....(I think.) Anyway, my husband was traveling when I decided to start this quilt and I just stayed in my kitchen day and night working on it. I had strings and fabric pieces all over the floor (and me) and was so exhausted by the time I went to bed every night, I never cleaned up until it was completely done. I never could have made it with him home, especially not with cooking and everything else my daily life brings in my kitchen. It took me 5 days and I love it! It has all the colors I adore and I was so proud of myself when I was done that I could do it and make it look good. Since then I have learned so much, but this quilt will always be special to me.
