Today is the start of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Amy of Park City Girl started it last spring to coincide with the Chicago Quilt Market and Festival event. This one coincides with the Houston Quilt Market and Festival.
Blogger’s participating are sharing the story of one of their favorite quilts. Last time I shared this one. Here’s the one I’d like to show you this time.
It’s a mini quilt that I made using one of the foundation paper piecing blocks that Carol Doak designs especially for the members of her yahoogroup, the CarolDoakQuiltingGroup. The quilt is 12 x 12 and it’s my own design. A couple of years ago, Carol was writing an article for Quilter’s Newsletter and mentioned that the magazine was looking for photos of quilts made using her block designs. Carol collected and sent to QNM the photos that some of us sent her and they chose mine as one of the quilts for the article. The quilt is called “Compass Celebration” and the article is in the September/October 2008 issue of Quilter’s Newsletter.
Thanks for coming and enjoy!
