I just love this festival!
To visit all the lovely quilts, see some new friends,
visit some old friends . . . yummy!
Today I thought I would show you my courthouse steps quilt.
I started this quilt last August while I was in the middle of
downsizing and moving.
I loved the planning that had to go into this one,
like a puzzle.
I had to be able to lay it out to build each block on the last blocks.
You also needed to see color placement as you progressed,
there would be no flipping blocks around to get balance,
you had to find the balance as you sewed.
Kind of like life right?
I used Nice Jane for the backing
and a cute black and white leafy print for the binding.
I called this quilt Moving Day, because I made it through my big transition.
Then I decided that I wanted to donate it to Victoria's
Basic Quilts Charity.
I wanted someone else to find comfort in their transition.
I was so incredibly lucky to help Victoria hand out quilts
last December, so that made my donation even more special.
If you have a quilt that you can part with,
it is an amazing charity to support.
Thank you so much to Amy for hosting this quilt festival!
I so look forward to it each time it rolls around.
