Blogger's Quilt Festival- Fall 2009




Thanks to Amy of Park City Girl for hosting another Blogger's Quilt Festival. I can't wait to see all the other quilts and read their stories.

I don't know the name of this pattern. It was a group effort. Me and about ten of my closest Quilty Pals swapped fabrics and each made ourselves pretty much the same quilt. We all had our own take on the same pattern different borders, bindings etc... For number of years we all got together on a regular basis. We even went on retreat every year for a long time. Lives change, people move, home situations change and children grow. So we do not often get together as a group any more. I am just glad to have a reminder of the years we spent sharing our lives and quilting together.

It is hard when friends have to go their separate ways, but nice that you have this reminder of your get togethers.

Oh, how well I understand your statement about things changing and no longer getting together.
But haven't we been blessed with THE BEST memories.
Pick up the phone and call one of those girls......maybe I'll do the same thing tomorrow !

What sweet memories. Wouldn't it be fun if your friends all saw the quilt on your blog and you were all able to re-connect?
