Bloggers' Quilt Festival

It's time once again to head over to Amy's Creative Side for the virtual quilt festival. If you follow the link and scroll down the page, there are links to all the separate category pages and information on how to vote for your favorites. 

Here is my entry -- it's from a pattern called "Quodlibet" (which can be defined as "a whimsical combination of familiar melodies") that I happened upon the last time I was visiting my in-laws in Madison, WI.

I'm really not sure what category to put this in -- so I think I'll just go with"small quilts" -- it measures about 45" square and the top is all batiks.

 Here's a detail of the straight-line quilting on the back:

and a bonus shot of the sunset a couple nights ago -- damn that telephone line!

Fall Festival Giveaway

Another edit -- we have a winner, and it's Lisa Marie.  (I've sent an email...)

Edited to add another reminder: if you are a "no-reply" blogger, please be sure to give me your email address in your comment, or you can't win! (Dianne, this means you...)

Vicki is having a week-long giveaway on her site (but don't go there, because I want to win!) so I thought I'd join in...

Today's prize is this Amazing Radiance quilt pattern:
I bought this on a trip to Seattle a couple of years back; it's paper-pieced, and includes all the papers, untouched.

To be entered for the drawing on October 22, just leave me a comment, and make sure I have a way to contact you.
