Park City Girl: Quilt Festival - Spring 2009

I seen where Park City Girl is hosting an online Quilt Festival. So thought I add my favorite quilt. I made this quilt out of some scrap fabrics to donate to QWL (Quilts with Love) to go to the troops overseas. They are the reason we lay down at night in peace. So thought it would be nice to help our troops rest a little better too. Out of all the quilts I've made I think this is my favorite. I had to think it over for a few days deciding between a few when I remember this one which left the house right after it got the binding. It was made to the cot size they had asked them to be, which was a bit narrower then a twin but the quilt was very heavy and the hand quilting just made it feel so good. I have always been a big fan of RW&B quilts and have made one every year for the past three years since I started quilting. This is my favorite because it has 4 of my most favorite things, Bear paws, flying geese, RW&B and crosshatch quilting. I don't have a very good picture but I'm sure glad I took one. You can see the red and white strip backing. I still have some of this fabric. I remember buying the whole bolt. When I first started quilting I never knew how much to buy, so I'd just buy it all to much sure I had enough. I've made 2 quilts and backed one with it and still have some of that fabric left, LOl.

  11. I love the border, the bear claws alone make a wonderful quilt, but the added fancy border makes it gorgeous!

  14. I love the colours in this. So clean and fresh. I'm a sucker for blue, red and white.

    Know exactly what you mean about not knowing how much fabric to buy when you start out.
