I think I may have found my most favorite quilt of all time. Haven’t actually seen it in person yet, Barb took these pictures but…be still my heart.
Have a most wonderful Friday…it is Friday today, isn’t it? Traveling makes it difficult to remember. See ya.

Yes, I totally agree, fabulous. Thank you for finding and sharing. Best wishes at Festival.
GORGEOUS!! New or vintage? more details and pictures please.
My goodness, what a beautiful quilt. So much work went into that one for sure.
Thank you for sharing.
Oh my! Thank you for sharing. I would love to know more about it. Have fun – for the rest of us who are too far away to go to market:) Thank you again – your work always amazes me. Una
Is this an old quilt or new? It has an old soul– SO beautiful!
A friend discovered you at Quilt Festival and shared photos (on her blog) of your beautiful work. I just HAD to stop by and say, “hi, LOVE your work!” I can’t get enough altered art. 🙂
I,too,Love that quilt – but tell us more – is it a New quilt or an old one. Couldn’t really see any quilting on it……Some of the fabrics looked fairly new…..was it in a booth or in the actual show ???
Very interesting and the colors are great.
WOW! What a quilt. I agree, is it new or old? Who was the designer and can you get a pattern????Thanks for sharing.
ohhhh love that quilt!! And I really loved your booth at the festival!! Thanks for all of your inspiration!!
What an incredible quilt. Thanks for sharing. And I’d like to echo Barb’s request for details about this gorgeous quilt.
I saw this antique ‘quilt’ yesterday at International Quilt Festival in Houston and from information posted was made sometime during the 1880’s – 1890’s. It appeared to be attached to a backing fabric without batting (a coverlet) and for it’s age is quite beautiful. Dragonflies, butterflies, details appliqued on flower petals, and exquisite embroidery enhanced the charm of this wonderful piece.
Oh my heavenly goodness. This is absolutely exquisite! Wish I could see it in person. Yes, if you have more details please share! Wow. Jamie V in MT
I considered myself a non-quilter until I saw your booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I was just tagging along with a quilter friend who flew in from Portland to attend the show. I love looking at quilts but always felt that taking on such a hobbie was to insurmountable for me. However, after seeing your beautiful works of art, I became inspired! I realized then that one doesn’t have to take on large projects to create beautiful pieces of work. I was hooked!
When I got back home I dusted off my sewing machine and with the help of my friend started on my 1st nine patch square made from a $1.00 bag of scraps I purchased at your booth, along with your book My Quilting Friends as my guide. I was thrilled beyond words after I FINISHED my 1st cute, little patch! I will email you a picture once I learn how to download photos.
Thank you for the Inspiration!!! I don’t know who the lady was who was working the booth with you but she was very nice and encouraging. Thank her for me too!

I just love your work and all of those quilts were so beautiful. I’m inspired to give it a go and try and create some as well. Thanks so much for sharing your travels and work with me. Sandi
Your favorite quilt ever is gorgeous! Does it have a name? Is there a pattern? The close-up picture is facinating. Would like more information.
