Bloggers Quilt Festival

This morning I read about a "Virtual Quilt Festival" being hosted by Park City Girl.


Normally I do not participate in on-line events; however, I just had to be a part of this one! I love seeing quilts made by others for inspiration and I hope my "Favorite" quilt will inspire others.I chose my Fussy Cut quilt as a favorite for the Quilt Fest; I love the variety of fabrics used in this quilt.
And I love the size 60 x 60; perfect for snuggling.
My favorite part of the "Fussy Cut" quilt is the machine quilting;
The texture and weight of this quilt is simply wonderful!

Hi,

Beautiful quilt! Also, I homeschooled my children for many years - it was the best! Now they are all grown up.

I'm writing to see if you'd like to add your blog to my blog section at Quilt Qua. There are two lists - the first being blogs that have linked back to me. I do have a graphic if you'd care to use it.

I'm also doing a give away, connected to the show and tell. You can see that on the home page.

Thanks,
Connie Colten
