I couldn't resist joining them *VBS* Amy has hosted a worldwide quilt festival right here on the World Wide Web ! I signed on today at #453. The requirements are that you post a picture of YOUR favorite quilt(all comers welcome), tell about it and link back to Amy's blog.Very probably anyone who has visited my blog,over the past 3 years,has seen this old favorite, "Riding the Orphan Train, Heading West". The blocks used in the quilt are just that,orphans, left overs from other projects, rejects, and a spare parts, added to help them all play together. I think I made it in the late 1980's. I took this picture while I still owned my home. That got sold in 2002, so before that.
It's not made to a specific size, but very much "it is what it is". I utilty quilted it with perle cotton, and as desired, in multiple tread colors. Emphasis on whimsey. It was created in a time when Liberated Quilting was an infant, I believe that Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking was on the market, but I hadn't seen it as yet. It found very little favor among the quilters I knew and associated with. I was quite surprised at how wonderfully it was accepted here in blogland. Like the Ugly Duckling, it came into it's own, and I love it! *VBS*
