Online Quilt Festival

I hope everyone enjoyed the slideshow from my quilt group's current exhibit. For those of us who live far away from the big shows, the Bloggers' Quilt Festival organized by Park City Girl is a great alternative! I participated in the first one last April, but soon after, I finished this quilt, which might be my favorite quilt that I've made to date! It's made with Finnish Marimekko fabrics and white Kona cotton. Here's the original post. Don't forget to visit all the other bloggers participating in this great event and enjoy!

I love the fabrics in this one! What I'd do to get my hands on those fabrics!! (didn't have enough sense when I was traveling for Metso years ago and visited Scandanavia often)

I absolutely love this quilt! My favorites are the fabrics with the large graphic designs and white background that just 'float' on the quilt. Great.

Love the bright fabrics surrounded with white. Every time I make a quilt I think it is my "favorite". Sometimes it is very hard to give them away.
