A Quilt Festival




I am joining in the Quilt Festival hosted by Park City Girl.

Its so hard to make a decision as to which quilt is my favorite. Its like choosing which child is your favorite. But, nonetheless, the quilt I chose to showcase is my Fall Scrap Quilt.

The picture above shows it hanging on my sewing room wall. I have draped a sunflower garland across the top. I love sunflowers and fall, so this picture says a lot about me.

More pictures of it hanging on the clothesline:

Great quilt! I have a soft spot for scrap quilts, and this design is definitely on my rather long list of quilts that I would like to make. Your color/fabric selection is lovely!

Debbie,
I love scrap quilts and I love your fall colored one. The sunflower addition is gorgeous too.

Sunflowers are my favorite and if you go back to my previous post you will find a disappearing 9 patch that is all sunflowers.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt. Enjoy the festival.
Regards,
Anna
