Amy’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival 2011…

…is HERE for another year!!  Thanks so much Amy, for sponsoring this annual Quilt Festival!!  It’s always a fun event! 

Now what quilt to show you this year?? 

SETTLER’S PRIDE of course!!  It’s my biggest wool project to date…I know…I know…my loyal readers are shaking their heads and saying….  “NOOOooooo NOT Settler’s Pride…again!!”  That’s OK…you are free to go!  :o)

Settler’s Pride is my all time favourite wool quilt…no correction…my favourite all time quilt!  Love it!

P1140030

Settler’s Pride was designed by Maggie Bonanomi…(try saying that one fast three times!!)  Love her designs!!

    P1140036-1

And here SHE is (Settler’s Pride not Maggie Bononomi) hanging in the family room! 

P1140698

I hope you join us over at Amy’s Creative Side and enter your favourite quilt!  It’s more fun when you jump in and participate…and did I mention the PRIZES…?!  Even if you don’t enter…make sure you hop over and take a peak at some of the wonderful entries…get some inspiration for those looooonnnng Winter months…or not so long Summer months (depending on where you live!)

Tomorrow is the BIG day…we start our RVing Snow Birding Trek down south…just follow those GEESE!!

Have a SUPER Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P

Oh my, that certainly crept up quickly. Hope you get through customs alright. I'm on my way to Vancouver tomorrow for the day. Happy trails, and I'll be watching for those lovely photos of your trip down the coast.

Settler's Pride is an absolute beauty Paulette! If I ever throw away the rest of my fabric and just save the wool, I may try to tackle something like that one day - but I doubt it, so I'll just enjoy photos of yours.
Safe travels friend.

An amazing quilt! Thanks so much for sharing! It is certainly something to be "proud" of! Bon voyage and best wishes for a wonderful safe journey south...enjoy the drive and hope to see some pics posted of some quilt and wool shops...isn't that why you really go south? Not to escape the northern weather but to scout out some new quilt/wool shops? Chuckle, chuckle!
Enjoy...will be thinking of you!

Beautiful! I can see why it's your favorite. Haven't done anything with wool yet, but will be starting a block of the month project soon.

That is a real wool beauty and a great quilt design! I am hoping to get into wools. I recently purchased my first bundles and look forward to tying them out as winter projects.

I'd also love to get an RV some day. Enjoy the trip south!
