Bloggers' Fall 2011 Quilt Show

Twice a year, Amy  hosts the Bloggers' Online Quilt Festival. It is a visual treat for quilters. Today is the last day to post to her site, but the quilts will remain on her blog to enjoy. The last time I looked there were almost 600 quilt entries. 
My entry this Fall is White Chocolate. This is a UFO that I have finally finished. It is in the book Spotlight on Neutrals by Pat Wys. I supersized the quilt and made it king size. I wasn't sure about my choice of fabrics for this project. I used only neutrals that I had in my stash. I was afraid that some of the tones wouldn't "play well together", but once the blocks were arranged and the top was quilted, it worked. This quilt was made in honor of my mother. Although, she wasn't a quilter she valued quilts and always wanted a handmade one. Unfortunately, by the time I began quilting she was no longer with us. It will be gifted to my brother and sister-in-law this Christmas season.
