Blogger's Quilt Festival

Park City Girl is having a virtual Quilt Festival which is a lot of fun. Bloggers from across the world are posting pics of their favorite quilts for all of us to view and appreciate.
The Park City Girl, Amy, who's blog is here is hosting an online quilt show for those of us who can't get to Houston this week. Actually, she's hosting it for those who can get there too! It's not a competition. What you do is choose one of your quilts and show it and tell its story on your blog, put a link on her blog and that's all. Then you can follow all the links for an amazing on-line quilt show. Oh yes, and there are prizes too, which I think are won in a draw.

My favorite quilt of the year is Jacob's Train quilt that I made in May for my newest grandson, Jacob Scott. Since he is now enjoying the quilt, I don't have it to take more pictures. The quilt was made from a kit by Fons and Porter. It took 5 months to get the kit because it was on backorder month after month. I had almost given up on getting it when I finally received an email message telling me it had been sent. In the long run, it was worth waiting for!
I used machine applique to put the train pieces together, and there were lots of little pieces on each train car. The smoke coming from the engine stacks is small rickrack and the train tracks are a larger rickrack. I wish I had taken some close up photos of the individual train cars for you to see. Oh, well... I think if you click on the picture, it will open in a larger size so the details can be easily seen.
Now click on the bloggers quilt festival button in my sidebar and visit other blogs that are showing their quilts.
