Favourite Quilt

Park City Girl is having a blogger quilt show of favourite quilts. I *think* this has to be my favourite. It's a "Saturday Sampler" from a quilt store which took me several years to get around to finishing. I had loved some of the blocks, hated others, loved the setting fabrics but hated the way the orignal setting came together... Eventually I decided to give it to my friend Sarah for her birthday and got on with finishing it in this simple setting. That's when I fell in love with it - I don't know why, I think it's just pretty fabrics and simple.


And Sarah? I finished this quilt and gave it to her

  8. The setting really makes it. Sometimes the whole is worth more than the sum of the parts - very Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

    I have some books to get in the post to you too.

  16. Hi Lisa - love the quilt and I'm really glad you decided to keep it for yourself. Thanks for visiting my quilt. Do have a go at using the embroidered pieces. It is really fun and nice to be able to see them rather than them being shut away in a cupboard. I hope you'll visit my blog again.
