Spring Quilt Festival!

Okay..this is my first time ever
joining a blogger's quilt festival
and I am so excited!
The hostess is Amy from

You can see all the participants by clicking
on the Blogger's Quilt Festival
button on the right side bar.
Make sure to stop over and check out
all the AMAZING quilts!

The quilt I am sharing is the one from a quilt guild I used to belong to - 
the Muscatine Melon Patcher's.
We did a round robin quilt where the quilt owner
made the first row, then it was passed around each month for 7 months
for another member to make a row.
The owner could leave everything up
to the other participants, or
they could leave instructions to follow.
The only instruction I gave was that the fabrics
should be 1930's reproduction fabrics.
At the end, all the rows came back to the owner
 to put together however they would like.
I was thrilled with all the beautiful work
everyone put into this piece of art.

I enjoyed this project a lot because of all the other
quilts I got to work on as well.  It was a great
way to use your imagination and creativity
while creating a row for all the different quilts
I worked on.  But I have to say,
when I got mine back,
I was in love!
But don't tell my husband that.
Cause he's my only 'true' love.
Thanks for stopping over
for a visit!  Next time I'll have some cookies.

I love your quilt. I love the soft colors and the variety of squares. This quilt show has been lots of fun. Good luck on your t-shirt quilt. They are a challenge. Even with the iron on interfacing it is sooooo hard to get them to stay flat and not pucker. I tried clips to anchor the backing, pins, basting (and ripping out) and basting again. They will try your patience. I will try to watch for pictures on your blog.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

What a special quilt full of memories. And not just of the guild members, but of each of their quilts you contributed to as well. It came out beautifully!

I am so in love with this quilt. I heart 30's repo fabric. I purchased some repo fabric to make an apron, but ahven't gotten to it yet. More projects = less time!!!

What a lovely quilt! Row Robins/Round Robins can go so horribly wrong, but this one turned out absolutely wonderful!
