Bloggers' Quilt Festival Spring 2011

Amy's Creative Side | Bloggers' Quilt Festival

Welcome to all who are visiting from the Blogger's Quilt Festival and a big thanks to Amy for hosting it! This is my second time participating in the festival and this time I choose a quilt I finished a few years ago.

It's called the Elizabeth Quilt because that is the name of the pattern design by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I bought the pattern and fabric when I was with my mom (Elizabeth), her best friend and my best friend at the Houston International Quilt Show in 2004. I debated a while about buying the fabric but my friend said it is so "Laura" you must get it so I did. The designer named the quilt Elizabeth because the fabric line is named Wuthering Heights from Moda's Three Sisters line. Since my mom is also named Elizabeth and was with me when I bought it we've always called it the Elizabeth quilt.

My fabulous machine quilter Margaret did a super job machine quilting it with variegated thread:
