Park City Girl is hosting a quilt festival, come join in the fun!
For my quilt I am going to show my mini quilt. I am proud of this quilt. It's the first quilt I have ever 100% finished all by myself (I usually beg my mom to do my bindings for me).
I started it out for a "Thumbelina" quilt contest. Considering it was my first pieced quilt, I didn't expect much, but I was proud of myself for doing something I didn't believe I could do. Not only did I piece blocks, but I pieced 3" blocks and had to convert the patterns down from 12" blocks. I chose the blocks by myself from a website of free block patterns and chose where to lay them out and the colors etc.
I worked on this quilt while my grandfather was very ill in the hospital. Working on the tiny blocks occupied my mind and helped me fill time between phone calls to the hospital to check on his progress. Sadly, my grandpa passed away and now when I see this quilt, I think of him. I miss him.
More amazing things about this quilt, it won the contest at the quilt shop, and later won a blue ribbon at the state fair. It's name is Validation and it is truly that.
Now that you have seen my quilt, head on over to Park City Girl and join in on the fun!
