My Favorite Quilt - Bloggers Quilt Fest
I had to think really hard to pick my favorite. This quilt is called 'Moonrise at Sunset' and is the second quilt I did and was finished in 2006. It is also my first attempt at free motion quilting. Someone in my family saw it and asked if there was some kind of show I could enter it in. I hadn't really thought of showing it but did a search on Google and found a local guild that was putting on their semi- annual show and I entered the quilt. I went to the show with my daughter and granddaughter and was shocked when I came around a corner and saw a big blue ribbon on my quilt. This really gave me the boost of confidence I needed to continue down this path. I have learned so much in the last 3 years and am still excited about all aspects of art quilting. So even if this is not one of my best works it still has a special meaning to me.
