Amy of Park City Girl organized an Online Quilt Festival.
Her idea is for us to share one of our favorite quilts, give the story behind it then link back to her blog. In this way everyone has the opportunity to view quilts from all over the world from the comfort of their own homes and to read the stories behind them. Cool, huh?
My favorite quilt is derived from a pattern that was featured in the June 2008 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.
The pattern is called "Sweet Retreat" and was designed by Holly Holderman of Lakehouse Dry Goods. In her design, Holly had included some large floral setting squares which I opted to leave out.
I knew when I started this quilt that it would be a challenge for me because I hadn’t been quilting for that long. It took me ten days from start to finish to cut it out and then piece it. Then off it went to the machine quilter’s.
The addition of Prairie Points framed the quilt very nicely.
This is my favorite quilt that I’ve made thus far in my still relatively short quilting journey. Hopefully there will be many more to follow.
