Amy at Park City Girl is having an online quilt festival and thought I'd join in. I rarely join in blog giveaways or put links in for others, but this is a good idea.
She asks to put a picture of your favorite quilt up and tell the story. I have so many quilts that I love it's hard to pick one.
The quilt above is my first machine appliqued quilt. It was a class called "Drunkard's Flowers" at QuiltUniversity. It took me a year to finish and quilt it. I gave the quilt to my mother a couple of years ago so I don't have better pictures of it. If you click on it, I think it will show up with more detailed look.
I FMQ with a satin stitch around all the flowers and leaves. I FMQ a vine in the white area around the center flower. I outlined the flowers and the half/circles around the outer border. It will always be one of my favorite quilts because it was so hard to make as a newbie yet it turned out so beautiful.
