Bloggers Quilt Festival
I haven't participated in Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival in a while. I've missed everyone visiting and visiting the other participants blogs. This time I'm not missing out.
I made this quilt several years ago from a Bali Pop and my stash. The pattern was from one of my magazines but I don't remember which one and I didn't exactly follow it.
There is an embarrassingly funny story about this quilt. I used to hang my quilt flimsies in a spare closet until it was time to take to the quilters. When I was unemployed I had quite a few hanging in there. I reserved time at local shop to rent their long arm, when it was time I couldn't find the quilt. I looked in every nook and cranny in this house. I knew it had to here. I had taken it with me to quilt shop in Vacaville to show a friend and I thought maybe I had left it there. I was broken hearted. I love how the quilt turned out then to lose it was very disappointing. I told everyone my sad lost quilt story. I spent over a month trying to decide if I was going to remake it or not. In the mean time I decide to quilt one of my other quilts....can you guess what happened? Yup, right there in the closet where it was suppose to be.
