Bloggers Quilt Festival

I have joined in on Bloggers Quilt Festival. Amy at Park City Girl started this fun. Go to her blog to find out how to join.

My favorit quilt is my Millenium Quilt. It's called Stars in Cyberspace. Click on photo for a big size.



This quilt is a result of swapping with quilters using internet. I started in February 1999 and closed in october same year swapping 25 3" charms and a signature block. Ended up with swapping with 132 different quilters from all over the world. All the signatures is in the quilt but not all the charms. The quilt have signatures from 50 US states and 36 other countries. The block is called Contrary Wife and have the signature in the middle. The top was finnished in desember 1999 and quilting finnished february 2000. The quilt have 1804 pieces, not counting backing and binding.
This Quilt have been displayd at an exhibition in Val d'Argent in France. I know some of the quilters contributing to this quilt have seen it displayd found their siggies.
Take care, and have fun!
Hugs from Nancy

Beautiful quilt! I love how you set up some of the lighter colors to look like it is flowing from one side to the other. Great job.

Nydelig teppe. Når jeg så på det lille bildet så jeg stjerneblokker, ved forstørrelsen så jeg de opprinnelige blokkene. Spennende.
