Well I am in Houston at this time enjoying Quilt Market and will be bringing back lots of goodies to share. But while I am there I wanted to participate in Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival
! So I scheduled this post and wanted to show you my favorite quilt.
I actually have two favorites. The first is a Judy Niemeyer
quilt design that I completed. It is paper pieced and I just love it. Batiks were used to give this quilt a good variation in color. This quilt is also my avatar. So if you see this on any blogs it is probably mine. The pattern is called Fourth of July! This quilt top is not yet quilted, because I plan on doing some really nice custom quilting once I get it on my long arm.
The second quilt is called Fabulous! It is a strata pattern from 4th and 6th designs
. I just love this one because of the colors and the effect that the strata makes when arranged in a particular order. I just love jewel tones.
This quilt is quilted. I quilted it with an edge to edge design called The Grass is Greener. This quilt didn't call for something more elaborate because of the design. The quilting was done with a monochromatic cotton variegated thread. I just love this one. Can you tell I love bright and lively colors?
Also, I am one of Amy's sponsor and have a wonderful prize to have some quilting done by me! Good luck to you all!
Also, since you are all surfing the web looking at all the wonderful quilts for this blogger quilt festival, I wanted to share a quilt show that is taking place closer to my home too. If you live in CT or close by, you might want to check out this wonderful quilt show. All the information can be found on this website, so click HERE

Until Next Time...
