Blogger's Quilt Festival is here!

This is the most wonderful eye candy that comes to us semi-annually from Amy.  I guarantee you will see a lot of great quilts to admire and inspire.  And there's a bunch of yummy giveaways too!

Here's my entry:  Rescued Log
   I went to a yard sale close by and found they were selling a bag of fabric for $10.  It was a large bag.  In there with all the yardage was this partial quilt that looked like it had been cut up  for use as something else.  Two sides had jagged edges.  I loved the colors so I bought the whole bag.  I took the quilt apart and had about 13 blocks.  I used four of them to repair 4 others that needed bringing up to size.  They were already quilted, so I decided to put them back together as a Quilt as you Go quilt.  My daughter-in-law in Colorado had admired the blocks and when it was done, I sent it to her for her birthday.  She is very happy with it.  And I'm happy I was able to salvage someone's log cabin.

See all the other quilts at Amy's Creative Side post for her Blogger Quilt Festival.  You'll be glad you did!

Great rescue job. I was just reading another post about calling quilts with issues, rescue quilts instead of cutter quilts. Kudos.

Come see my entries, #212 repro cheddar stars and 216 antique 1850 applique flower garden
