I'm so late for the show... My number 1 reason for not joining a guild & showing my quilts in real life...
Yesterday, when I saw at least a dozen entries on my bloglines, I decided that I would hold a photo session that evening!
My first question to answer was, "How do I choose just one?" Is it the rag quilt that will be my only rag quilt? The blooming 9-patch that sat waiting forever? Either of my Taupe quilts? Either of the gift quilts for my son? Any of the quilts that I made for my son? The quilt that I made for my husband? The halloween quilt that I made because I had so many cat prints? My wedding Chuppah? My wedding signatures quilt? The authentic Amish quilt? The Plain Spoken quilt that is hanging in my living room? The Metro Blue quilt that I am so glad that I made a while ago becasue I am not so much into blue & brown anymore? My bed sized fish applique quilt - just to prove that I could make a bed sized applique quilt? Either of the two cat charm quilts?
No, if I have to choose a favorite it would be this one:
I love that it is scrappy, I love that it is 100% hand made, I love that it is curved piecing, I love that none of the "blocks" are quite the same or "correct", I love that my grandmother can tell you about the scraps, "I remember wearing a dress made out of that fabric." & I love that my grandmother trusted me with it. It was made by my great grandmother, Edna Lane in the 30's.
That would be his great great grandmother!
