Blogger's Quilt Festival

So as usual I'm almost a day late and a dollar short, but I do believe I'm just sliding in before the deadline for Park City Girl's Blogger's Quilt Festival. I don't have a new quilt to show, but I delved into my photo archives and found a pics of one of my favorites. I have shown it on my blog before, but some of you probably haven't seen it unless you've read through my archives.

It is a Valori Wells design, and was one of the first needle-turn applique quilts I made. I think I did it in about 2003? It was also my first prize-winning quilt (in the UT Springville Museum of Art quilt show) that I received a cold hard cash prize for!

Right now, sadly, it is hanging in my basement as I just don't have any walls upstairs big enough to hang it. But it is directly at the bottom of the basement stairs, so I get to smile every time I go down there:)

I have not seen your quilt before, so I am happy that you are showing another picture of it. You did a really good job in the making of this quilt. I like how the sunflower centers are crazy quilt style. I can see why the quilt makes you smile.

Wow! Having seen this quilt and drooled over it so many times I can say "That's such a crappy picture!" OMG...these pics just don't do it justice. Wish everyone could see your magnificent quilt up close and personal. They would have a RZ moment and go "BAH-NAH-NAS!" LOL! Hey, maybe that's why GP loves your basement...he gets to look at the sunflower angels while working out on your treadmil! You just can't beat that! LOL!
