2011 Fall Quilt Festival


Here is my 2011 submission to Amy's Quilt festival. I have no idea how she got started doing this but it is such a fantastic idea. If you want to see a quilt show and cannot make it Houston then you must go to Amy's and look at all the lovely quilts.

I finished this quilt earlier this year and love it as much as I did then. I adore anything patriotic and this quilt took center stage all summer long at my house. It is a pattern designed by PieceOCake.
My friend Kathy McCarty (from Ohio) did the machine quilting.


I hope you enjoy seeing it again.

  5. Lori, the quilt is lovely - every time I look at it, I see some little detail I didn't see the first time - I think that makes it a work of "art"!!
