Bloggers Quilt Festival-Fall 2011

It’s always so much fun to look at all the quilts posted in the Bloggers Quilt Festival.  This year I thought I would post a quilt of mine.

This is a linen, wholecloth quilt.  I learned how to make this kind of quilt from a class by Cindy Needham.  The bridge tablecloth had embroidery on it so I design the quilting to enhance the embroidery.  I stitched it to a lovely piece of blue fabric and then quilted it.  I wanted it to have a pretty name and my husband suggested his grandmother’s name, Anna LaFrance.  The label is an old cocktail napkin and has a picture of her.  The hanging sleeve is a piece of lace.

This was the first quilt I’ve done of this type.  It was a trial run before I do a tablecloth that my Mom cross stitched.  I didn’t want to start with hers because I was so afraid I would ruin it.  Now I have the confidence to quilt her tablecloth.  It will be wonderful to be able to have something Mom made to snuggle in.
