Applique Posies - Blogger Quilt Festival

A favorite spring and fall event, is the Bloggers' Quilt Festival run by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side (a fellow Utah blogging quilter).  I'm sharing my recently completed quilt, made/donated for the 2013 Pilgrim Roy Invitational Challenge (fundraiser for the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky).  It was recently displayed in Paducah and will be traveling to other AQS shows over the next year.  Here's block one (before quilting) :

And the full quilt, Pennsylvania Posies for Paducah:
40 x 40", Completed 2012
Original Design
Hand Appliqued and Hand Quilted
Donation to National Quilt Museum
It is a reproduction/adaptation of several antique quilts in my collection and inspired by my favorite Pennsylvania German colors. 

Here is one of the inspiration blocks.  You can click on my earlier 2012 entries to read/see more of the antique inspirations.
