Quilt Identified


Happy Halloween!!

The quilt from last post is identified. The maker herself was innocently blog-reading and came across her own quilt. Here is her email:
"Hi Karen,
The (mostly red) quilt on your 10/28/07 blog (which by the way the blog is great and I really enjoy it) is mine - it is from a primitive class with Fran House at LQ in the winter of 2004 -- your picture was probably taken from the 2005 ECQG show. Fran designed a raffle quilt for the 2003 show and then taught a class using the design with variations. I then finally finished the quilt with more variations and original border design and exhibited it in the 2005 show.
Last week I took a class with Barbara Barnes/LQ on the 'big stitch'...when your blog was the only true wonderful reference I could find on the internet with great pics.
Let me know if you have any more questions about "Everyday Applique" the quilt's title. Buy the way I was just catching up on reading your blog when there it was...quite a fun surprise."

Isn't that great to know? The maker is not sure if she has a full-size photo of the quilt or not, but I'll post it if she finds it.

I've been doing some rearranging of my sewing room and other rooms in the house, including my art room, trying to make things look more presentable as well as functional :-). I've been straightening my stash areas (old jelly cupboard and a few closets) along with the general fix-er-up and the fabrics look divine enough to use lol.

So glad you were able to have that gorgeous quilt identified--and in such a fun way! I didn't find it in my patterns, but it definitely looked familiar!

Wow that is an amazing coincidence that the maker saw her quilt on your blog! If she does get a full size photo, ask her if you can post it - I'd (and I'm sure others) love to see the whole thing!
