The Bloggers Quilt Festival – Fall 2009

Park City Girl is holding a really neat event, the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Basically it’s a way for all the bloggers out there to share their favorite quilt they’ve made. Why not join in the fun?

I’m including my Good Folks String Quilt. It’s by far my favorite quilt to date. I love the design, I love the hard work I put into it, I love the Anna Maria Horner Good Folks fabric. Pictures just don’t do it justice. I keep in on my couch where the colors just make me so happy as the days get a bit drearier. My kids love playing on it and staring at the design. Overall, it’s just a very happy quilt. You can read more about it here.
