Blogger's Quilt Festival 2012

I almost forgot that it's that time of year for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

My featured quilt this year is my thread painted warbler.  This is my favorite wall quilt and recently won an Honorable Mention at the Sauder's Quilt Show in Ohio.

I made this wall hanging for my sister, Jenny, this last Christmas.  She had hinted around for several months that she wanted me to thread paint her a bird.  I had made several other thread painted birds and it was about time I did something special for her.

 I designed the feather for Jenny and also gave her the pattern to use.  Jenny is very talented quilt artist and she loves feathers like I do.  I'm looking forward to seeing her feather designs in the future.

Hope everyone is enjoying the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
Please don't miss my weekly post--I usually don't do two posts in one day!

Happy Quilting!

Good luck - This is one of my favorites of your works. Truly it is. I am so far behind on keeping up with everyone, been missing your blogs, glad I finally had few moments to try and catch up with you.

I love your thread painting and you have captured the warbler so well. Good luck in the bloggers quilt festival. I have been a bit detached from quilting and blogging lately. I love the traveling but I have no sewing to relax with. (I am not much into hand sewing). The quilts in your previous post are amazing. Today I hope to buy a bit of fabric in Paris. The fabric in Italy was 2 and 3 hundred euros a metre. A bit too pricy for my lifestyle. I am more a polyester girl :)
Thanks for following me on my trip.
