Amy at Park City Girl is hosting what I believe to be the 2nd annual Quilt Festival.
I haven't shown anyone on blogland this quilt. I do love it so. It won 3rd prize at the 2004 Muscat Quilt Exhibition. You can see my little award there.
I saw it in a magazine from Australia. I loved it so much. It is called 'A Ribbon Pathway' and is a pattern by Eleanor Burns, an AMERICAN!! I loved the route to school every morning in the winter here in Muscat as it is like Spring back home in St. Louis, MO. Everything is in bloom and the weather is gorgeous. It inspired me to make a quilt and when I saw this pattern, I knew I had to make it. I ordered the fabrics online and had some already.
So, glad you stopped by and come back and have a look at what I am up to in my little part of the world.
edited: I decided that I did not like that the link was not any bigger than what is blogged so I went over to the wall and took some pics and am uploading them so you can see my lovely better!
It is morning here and still needed a light so the colors look more dim or duller than they really are. It really is a happy quilt!
Here is a close-up so you can see the quilting. I did like an echo flower in the white squares with the intention of this type of quilting (as was advised at the time) to take up some of the puffiness. I tend to make puffy quilts and it is not about the batting! I'm getting better though.
This is a view from one corner for you all to see that I used many bindings. That was FUN! and so that you could see my butterfly. All the fabs are floral except for one, a yellow one, it had bugs all over it. Very cute. I quilted frogs, inchworms, dragonflies, butterflies and ladybugs all over the edges.
There, I think I am happy with my additional edit of this post! Enjoy!!
