This is the quilt that I would like to enter in Amy’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival..it’s called Sticks and Stones by Sandy Gervais.
I love everything about this quilt…the simplicity of the pattern, the fabric…(Rouenneries by French General)…and the colours. I made this quilt back in July of this year..hence the flowers in the background.
If you look closely you will notice that she’s not quilted…yet!! This is the exciting part…Quilt Sue (from Quilt Times) who lives in England and I bartered services…I made Quilt Sue a Penny Rug and mailed it off with the Sticks and Stones top and the backing…and Sue is going to work her quilting magic on it…hopefully soon…(I will blog about it when I get her back!!)
In the mean time…I enjoy looking at the pictures of her hanging around the garden…
This is the penny rug that Sue got in exchange for her quilting services…. The pattern is called “Sunflowers and Chickens” by All Through the Night and I really loved making it!! These hens are now clucking with a British accent! :o)
Isn’t it nice that through Blogging complete strangers can do something as wonderful as this?! The amazing part is things like this happen all the time in Blogland!! Quilters are so amazing!!
