Blogger's Quilt Festival

I had such an amazing time creating this twin sized quilt for my grandmother that I just want to share it with a wider audience.  The quilt itself is nothing revolutionary in terms of design and the construction isn't as perfect as it could have been.

But for me the process of making this quilt was so very special and heartwarming.

I loved soliciting signatures by mail, learning to embroider just to do the signatures, thinking about each family member as I worked on each block, and I loved giving it to my grandmother. 

I put a lot into it and I hope you enjoy its story.  Check out the lengthy original blog post with many more pictures here.

Thanks for stopping in!

  1. Did you send out the fabric itself for the signatures, or did you transfer the names on later. I did something similar in the last year or so, and I, too, loved embroidering the names. It's a pretty quilt. Thanks for sharing.
