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

I feel like "so many quilts to see, so little time" yours deserves a cheery comment. It's a great quilt.

Love the color combination. A bit different from a lot of the others.

sometimes its love at first sight, and others just have to grow on you! Glad, having fallen in love, you decided to make another for your friend.

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.

It is a beautiful quilt. It is amazing how are perspectives can change. I know that I have put together quilts I have not liked and then suddenly finding a way to change something about it as made me love it.

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.
