Better Late Than Never

With all the excitement around Market and working to get things done to display Julie's fabric the Bloggers Quilt Festival slipped my mind. That is until I say Amy at the meet up and started seeing all the beautiful quilts popping up on people's blogs. This is such a fun tradition I don't want to miss out on the fun. So I'm joining in. I figure, better late than never.


Amy's Creative Side


The quilt I chose this time is my Kelidoscope quilt. I chose it for many reasons. The main one being that I made it with a dear friend. She and I sewing in my sewing room chating and laughing will always be a charished part of this quilt. So not only does it hold the memories of all the scraps of every quilt that came before it but the fond memories of sewing with my friend.



So that when I wrap up in it I'm reminded of so many good things, how could it not be a favorite?


Make sure you visit Amy's great blog and check out all the other quilts in the Festival. There are some real beauties.

  1. You know, I feel the exact same way about scrap quilts. They tell a story. I can look at every piece and know where it came from.

    I love your quilt and love that you made it with a friend!
