Blogger's Quilt Festival

First off thanks to Amy for this brilliant idea!
My all time favorite quilt is my family reunion quilt.
It is my favorite for so many reasons.I love the creativity that went into making it.
I love the way my family likes to look at it and reminisce.

I love the memories it captures.

I love the symbolism of the border with my heritage.

What can I say I love this quilt.
