Blogger Quilt Festival

This is my entry in the Blogger Quilt Festival. (I'm going to try very hard to figure out how to actually post it on the Blogger Quilt Festival. I'm new to this and can't figure it out. If anyone can help me before Friday, please do!!) I made this quilt top years and years ago and it sat in a drawer till last summer when I realized I really love it and would make it my project to finish it last summer. The center fabrics are from France or Montreal. I loved the colors of Provence and brought back some small pieces. In Montreal a very nice man in a shop selling napkins and tablecloths let me sift through his trash for bits and pieces! This isn't quilting fabric and since I work by hand it was not an easy go. I broke so many needles I lost count, but it's finished and I love it. I carry it around the house with me, I sleep under it at night. It reminds me of a very beautiful part of the world.

  2. That really is a pretty quilt. I love the sashing material and how you've created the narrow bands.

  3. What a gorgeous quilt, Denice! I love the fabrics from the Provence; they are so cheerful and sun-shiny and always remind me of summer - as does your quilt!

    Best wishes from Germany,
