Amy at Park City Girl is having a Blogger Quilt Festival on line for this Fall and this is the quilt I want to share!
I made it following the Basket Crazies pattern from The Buggy Barn using Holly Taylor fabrics if I remember well!
I bought pattern and fabrics during a beautiful vacation in the Northeast of USA in 2002. The quilt shop was in Rangeley (Maine) and there was a very big cat that I am impressed every time I think to our great vacation!

Many things happened here that kept me away from blogging and crazy quilting in Dad passed away on September 27 after hard month at the Hospital.

So no time or desire to do something in relax.
I am starting now with a few little projects but I will post a pic in the near future!
As soon...

Laura's ATG DYB and new B&W DYB

Laura's ATG DYB she chose to do a little quilt for Project Linus with the final result and so I thought to do a redwork designs on one of her blocks from "Favorite redwork designs" by Betty 

Alderman and two traditional seams.

This is the Black and White DYB in the CQI Group. I added a red as I always wanted something 
like that and I asked for an all red thread only on the seams for this project!

Bloggers Quilt Festival

Park City Girl  is hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival and I think that is a beautiful thing! 

I choose to show this quilt I made during an on line Quilt Class. The fabrics are all cotton the background is deep brown and the quilting is by machine.
The class was very good and I loved the method used in the same time I made a second quilt with different colors to see the differences in dark and light background.
