Blogger's Quilt Festival

I hope you all are participating in


Hmmmm, we are supposed to post about a favorite or special quilt.  That is really hard for me... to pick a favorite quilt?!?  That's like saying pick your
favorite star in the sky, right? 
I have many favorites and to be honest,
 who makes a quilt they don't love
 and WANT to make, right?

I guess one of my favorite quilts is my "Poppies" wall quilt.  It was really fun to make- just kinda looked at other art floral quilts and did my own version .  I used fusible applique and did lots of thread "painting". 
It is my only real art quilt.


It hangs in my family room, and is
my husband's favorite quilt.
I used it for a long time for my blog header photo.


It was a true stash quilt as all the fabrics were
 from my scrap bin or my stash. 
I love it when you can do that, don't you??
What's YOUR favorite quilt?

  24. I absolutely LOVE your quilt! When traveling in Italy a couple years ago in early May the A-1 was literally alive with red poppies! When we rode the train there were field upon field of them!

    I was actually looking to buy some today to add to my new "Tuscan Garden" but could not... so for now I will relish yours...

    Thanks!
