My Favourite Quilt (not made by me)

The online quilt festival has been a humbling experience for me. Looking back at the quilts that I have actually finished, there aren't too many that I actually love. I have a couple good ones started and a few more in my head, but I've got some work to do. However, I do love this quilt festival. I am enjoying looking at every one's quilts...they are beautiful and oh, so inspiring.

But here is a quilt that I LOVE. It was a gift about a month ago for my daughter from one of my oldest friend's mom. She is a beautiful quilter. In fact, she is the one that inspired me to start quilting. I always loved visiting her sewing studio (right in the middle of her house) when I was a kid. I love that it is all solids. I love that it is wonky. I love the different sized squares and rectangles. This is where I want to get with my quilting. It is truly inspirational!

I enjoyed reading about both quilts you described. Despite being so different, each is special to you. I love the energy of this bold and bright and wonky Q, and the Buckeye beauty had a sweet story. Thanks for sharing them with us.

This quilt is amazing. My son drew something like this on Paint Shop and asked me to make it for him and I said, uuuhh...ok...I'll try. Did she do this with a free spirit and a free hand, or did she have a pattern.
