First Online Quilt Show

Amy @ Park City Girl is having an online quilt show. Entries are favorite quilts of the contestants. Well, mine is a repeat because this quilt is a favorite. I always wanted to make a quilt from the scraps left from my kids' summer jams and finally, I did it! Here is the Treadle On Mystery Quilt for 2009. The pattern was perfect for my scraps and I had fun making the quilt; so many special memories were sewn into the quilt. Thanks for letting me share!

Such a lovely quilt! I like the idea of re-using fabrics!

Wow what a bright and cheery quilt. Great idea to use the jams for the quilt. A real memory maker.

I offered the jams quilt to DD, but she refused it! I thought it would go perfectly in her office/guest room. Every wall in the room is painted a different bright color and they are all in the quilt. Oh, well, I get to keep it. I am not disappointed.

What a great quilt, plus it is so eco friendly :-) we all have to do our part even if it means making more quilts......oh the sacrifices we must make!

Great quilt! I made a baby quilt with the same pattern, with white and baby prints.

An impressive use of black to let the bright colors sing without shouting.
