Fall Festival Quilt Show Blog

This is a new challenge/blog for me to be involved in...Amy's Creative Side  is a very neat blog which sponsors a bloggers Quilt Show.  Click on the above to see all the quilts posted "out there"...including this one which I am going to post....

This wall hanging/quilt was my entry in my guild's show challenge.  Each year Trinity Valley Quilter's Guild of Fort Worth, Texas holds a quilt show and each show has a member's challenge.  This year our quilts were to be created with one "mystery" fabric. (the same for everyone) and to go along with the theme of using recycled material.  There are five quilts chosen by the judges, no 1st, 2nd, etc...just equally given a ribbon and a cash prize....We had 35 entries this year and mine was one of the lucky ones...my fabrics were scraps from my husband's old ties, bridesmaids' dresses, mother-of-the bride dress, formals, Halloween costumes, and more.  I did quite a bit of hand quilting and beading on the quilt practicing some of the techniques I recently learned from a class I took at Arrowmont.
