Spring Quilt Festival

Thanks to Amy at Amy's Creative Side,  the Spring Quilt Festival is on!  It is always fun to see what other quilters have been creating.


This spring I decided to show my guild, The Brownstone Quilters,  raffle quilt.  I re-designed Florence Peto's "Calico Garden" quilt.  All the members of the guild helped to create the blocks for this quilt.  Member, Cheryl did a stunning job quilting it.



The Brownstone Quilters is raffling this quilt during our quilt show which is 11-11-11 and 11-12-11.  You can see all the quilt show information by clicking here

Enjoy the Festival and thanks again, Amy.
