Blogger's Quilt Festival::Spring 2011

Amy, of Amy's Creative Side, is once again hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  This is a fun time for all blogging quilters to share a quilt that is special to them.  Click on the button to check out and be inspired by all of the special quilts.


The quilt I'm sharing will forever be one of my faves.  For a couple of reasons...the fabric and the purpose.  

The moment I saw this fabric, I was in love.  It is Kashmir III by Sentimental Studios for Moda.  It's an older line and  difficult to find anymore.  I was fortunate to find a fat quarter bundle and yardage.  Yet, it sat unused for a very long while because I wasn't sure what to do with it.

When I heard that a coworker's sister had pancreatic cancer, I knew that this was the intention of this fabric...to become a quilt for Carole.  I went with a simple look...a lap quilt made up of nine-patch blocks with sashing and a floating squares border.  

Carole loved it.

I feel very blessed that I was able to make this quilt for Carole...to help provide her with some comfort.  


Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10
