Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

While I was waiting for the Bloggers Quilt Festival to start, I knew exactly which quilt I wanted to showcase this year! This quilt was made for me when my mother passed away last fall due to complications from her cancer.

My friends from the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum all secretly put this quilt together, and then my friend Karen came from VA to hand deliver it to me.

I use this quilt every single day when I sit or lie on the couch watching television.  I love a cool house so I always love to wrap up when I am relaxing.  I feel their great big hug everytime I pull it up to my chin! :)

The beautiful label was handpainted by my friend Carolyn from CA!  She is such an artist!

A very special quilt! Our now 20 yr old son is a childhood cancer survivor and it was such a blessing for him to have gotten a handmade quilt when he was in the hospital at 14 years old...from the talented hands and caring heart of someone we didnt even know!

Keep warm and wrapped up in this special "hug" full of memories of your mom.

Blessings & Aloha!
(I am hopping over from the Quilt Festival...hope you get a chance to stop by :o) a novice quilter...I am taking this opportunity to ask quilter's what type of sewing machine do you use? )
