My favorite quilt (so far)

Interesting Blog Quilt Show going on, started by parkcitygirl at http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/2009/04/quilt-festival-spring-2009.html asking us each to blog about our own personal "Favorite Quilt" that we each have made. This request sent me back to looking at my quilt photo albums, wondering and wandering through the years.

I really like the one that is currently hanging on my kitchen "walk-past" wall behind the counter stools:

I just finally finished it this year, though it is one of my OLDEST, started back when Charlie was in seminiary, using scraps from the kids' toddler clothes. These kids are now 40 and 38.

I like the triangle shape, and especially how throwing a few mediums or darks into the light rows has made a lot of variously larger triangles show up.

This also may be the only quilt I ever hand quilted.
But tomorrow I'll have another favorite! Maybe I'll tell that story then.

I see what you mean about the secondary triangles showinging up. Love that effect, along with the scrappy look.

What a nice quilt. It's a great feeling when you finish an old project.

Great quilt! One of my first quilts was hand quilted. It took me about 10 years on and off. But it was worth it. My son now has it.

That is such a great idea, I love that you used your kids clothes!

What a great story of just keeping trying until you get the quilt done. The bright colors and pattern make for a very happy quilt.

Hi Sara,
I'm from GR too! I'm link number 151 in the quilt festival. Do you do charity quilting because Margaret's Hope Chest could really use some more help. Check it out! I love your scrap quilt!
