Online Quilt Festival-April 17 to 24

Morning everyone and good evening in some cases!!!! Amy of Park City Girl has organized the most wonderful online Quilt Festival, complete with sponsors and prizes! Her idea is for us to share a favorite quilt and give the story behind it and then link to Mr. Linky on her blog. When I last checked there was well over 370 quilts listed and it is so much fun to see and read about the quilts. Here is my very favorite quilt that I have made, a pink and brown log cabin. A friend of mine had made one and I just fell in love with it. I didn't really have much in the way of pinks and browns in my stash and set about searching for just the right colors. My group of friends at work started digging through their stashes and before I knew it I had an amazing pile of pinks and browns. My friend Deb gave me the perfect red for the center squares. I used the creams & lights from my stash and bought the border. Not only do I just love the quilt, but it is such a wonderful reminder of those precious friendships. Thanks to Amy for this wonderful and fun idea!!

I have made a little progress on the Stars and Strips quilt with some of the bits done! That ME fabric is so happy to sew on!!
Looser Monday report.......I gained :-( !!!! I figured if I wrote it small it wouldn't hurt so much.

Happy week to you all and hope to see you in the online Quilt Festival!

Your log cabin is great!! I have made that stars and strips. It was a lot of fun and I loved the results. Terry Atkinson has great designs. Sorry about the result for the week. Just jump back on the bandwagon.

I love this quilt. Pink and brown color combos are everywhere, but the large strips make a bold statement without going fussy.
