Amy of Park City Girl has organized an online Quilt Festival! Her idea is for us to share a favorite quilt and give the story behind it and then link to Mr. Linky on her blog. There are already a large list of bloggers linked in hopes of winning a prize from the generous sponsors! What a perfect way to spend a cold rainy dreary day!
And here is my favorite quilt. It is the quilt I used as a girl on my bed from Aunt Mary. I've blogged about this quilt before. But even as a young girl I had to have this quilt on my bed, even though it was old and worn, and even if it was summer I wanted this quilt. I think my love for this quilt is what made me want to learn how to quilt. Aunt Mary was the only person in our family who knew how to quilt, but by the time I got old enough to learn she had died (she was really my great aunt so much older).
Look at the awesome fabrics. This quilt is most certainly my favorite for all the memories and love it holds for me.
