Have you heard of the Blogger's Quilt Festival?
I'm not sure how I missed out on this in the past, but I am entering my Courting Quilt in the Applique category.

The Courting Quilt
|Appliqued and machine quilted by me!|
Of course, my favorite blocks are the bird blocks.

The Courting Quilt was finished in November of 2012 and measures 41"x 60".
My inspiration to make this quilt was the beautiful book A Bountiful Life by Karen Mowery, published by Kansas City Star. I used only Jo Morton fabrics from my stash. Because I planned to hang the finished quilt, I chose not to do all the blocks and borders from the book.
I will always cherish this quilt because of the friendship I formed with Karen Mowery who passed away earlier this year. She was an inspiring and sweet lady and I am so thankful I was able to be her friend for a short while as I worked on this quilt.
