Amy, Park City Girl, started it, this Blogger's Quilt Festival, and I am #456 to sign up. Surprisingly, it was quite easy for me to choose my favorite quilt.
In 2004, I participated in the IQA (International Quilt Association) Journal Quilt Project. The guidelines were simple: quilt size was to be 8.5x11" (like a journal page), any technique as long as it was the 3 layers of a quilt and you had to make one a month for nine months at the end of which choose five to send to Houston.
This quilt has always been my favorite. I interpreted an old photograph of myself holding my 6-month old son. The original was a 3"x5" faded color photo given to me by TheKid's godmother.
I used the right side and other right side of fabric for my jacket . It was also my first attempt at foiling (see my mirrored glasses?). To get the wispy layered look of the 1970's hair I used snips and strips of fabrics covered with yellow tulle and stitched down with free motion quilting.
