So, what makes a quilt be a "FAVORITE"? Is it the fabrics, the colors, the pattern, the technique?? I say YES to all of those. But isn't your favorite quilt the one that has the most memories? THAT quilt that brings back a moment in our lives - whether good or bad - but that one special moment that stays with us?
I challenged my friend Tirane to make a quilt with me - well not WITH me but to make the same pattern at the same time. We used a pattern from Bonnie Hunter but made it each our own. I had such a great time colaborating on this ( I understand why there are quilt partners like Gwen and Freddie!).
You need to go HERE to see the differences in our quilts - I love hers, I love mine! But there is a difference - a big difference! Check them out, you wouldn't know it is the same pattern.
Tirane has a long arm and she quilted this for me, too! I never tell her what to do, she just "knows" ( ain't it great! ) Go HERE to see the quilting,, she picked up the apple motif and made the border look like apple pies ( reminds me of my Mom's apple dumplings - OMG they were so! good! ) and there are little curly cues and leaves and -- oh! you really have to go look! -- it's just really great.
I really love the colors in this quilt. It's happy and warm and gives me the "warm fuzzy" feeling. I love the different patterns/textures in the fabrics, too. But I really like this quilt because my friend and I created it together. I have the memories of our conversations, our friendship. I know there are many more quilts that we will do together.
So, this is my entry into the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Enjoy them all!
Gotta go! I've got lots of quilts to look at! Thanks for looking at mine.
