Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2011...The Quilt I'm Sharing

For Blogger's Quilt Festival I'm sharing my Film Strip Quilt. The quilt was inspired by my dad and It's my favorite quilt to date. I came up with the pattern one day when I woke up thinking about my dad who passed away 8 years ago.

He was a photographer and  an artist. I've made 2 of these quilts. The first was gifted to my friend Amy to keep her warm during her chemo treatments. Which meant a lot to me to do for her because I initially started quilting to keep me busy while sitting with my dad during his chemo treatments.


 Ooops there are some wrinkles in this shot. Proof this quilt is well used and well loved :)


 I made a pieced back with a few wonky squares and a pieced strip. I think I have been most inspired while creating this quilt. I think my dad would be proud.

Nice balance of the white. I really like our design and choice of colors. They're not what you see every day, but they blend very nicely. And you're a photographer! With lots of cool props! Nicely done, even down to the wooden clothespins. Come visit me, I love comments too.
