Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2014

I hadn't planned to enter a quilt, but then I read Amity Quilter's latest post and just had to support all those hand quilter's out there. Evidently the hand quilting category had been deleted and then added back, so I'm helping out!

For those of you new to my blog, you can read my last post for more details about the quilt.

P. S. Don't forget to vote - opens in a little more than a week!!

I know that I have mentioned The Wedding Quilt aka TWQ, several times over the past year or so. is FINISHED!!!!! We delivered it to our son and dil yesterday, so I can now reveal the photos. Thanks to all of you who continued to encourage me on this journey.

The quilt is my own original design, though I was inspired by a design on a gift bag. DD#2 sketched the pattern to size, DD#3 helped choose fabrics and DD#1 did some of my chores so I could get in more quilting time. TWQ measures  95 " square and is hand appliqued and hand quilted. Every stitch was stitched with love and prayers! When I worked on it I called it - "Heirloom Time"!

Without further ado...

By the way - I entered TWQ in our guild's annual quilt show and it received 1st place in its category! I was surprised but very pleased!

This project was definitely a "journey" from selecting a pattern/design, to choosing fabrics, to appliqueing, to piecing the borders, to marking the quilting designs, to quilting, to fixing the mistakes - but a very fulfilling journey - one that took:

Blessings to each and every one of you wonderful blogging friends!
