Amy at Park City Girl is hosting a Fall Quilt Festival. Apparently she did one in the spring as well. There are lots of give-a-ways so I thought I'd repost my favorite quilt so far.
This is a wall quilt that I finished last year. I call it Garden At My Window. I machine pieced it and then quilted it by hand. I got the idea from a book called Watercolor Quilts by Pat Maixner Margaret and Donna Slusser. It was the first sewing book that I ever bought, and I even paid full price for it, which if you know me, you know how remarkable that really is. I love watercolor quilts. It's kind of like painting with fabrics. The little squares are each two inches. If you could see up close you could see how uneven my seams are, but I decided once a while back that my quilts are just imperfect on purpose. No matter how hard I try to be perfect at it, I end up having to fudge them here or there. But I still like my quilts imperfections and all! I also like to embroider dove outlines on my watercolor quilts here and there. They just seem to belong there to me. I love flowers and windows and light that comes in them. This quilt combines those elements for me.
