Amy's Creative Side: Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010


Amy's Creative Side: Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010

I'm not sure how many saw the quilt I made for my mother for Mother's Day(2009)... okay so I just made the top and she had to do the rest(Sept 2009)... If we had waited until I got it quilted it would have taken an eternity. I have a hard time finishing projects--okay quilting them-- I would rather make the top, give it to someone else to finish, when my husband's Grandmother was alive she loved to quilt and not piece, sure wish she was here now to help me, we would be quite the team.
Every time I look at it, I see my mistakes... marks of love is what I tell myself (it's really called learning the hard way.) This is my first fan quilt and my first time sewing curves for a quilt. yeah!! I made at least one of my goals this year.. learn something new... curves.

  12. optical possiblities are great in this quilt...several pleasing ways to look at it...it is peaceful and yet has bounce! there is also some dancelike quality to it and crosses cultures in some playful way in the fan,plate and flower feelings..very fine.
