Let the Blogger Quilt Festival begin!

Hiyall!
I know I am late! the festival started a few days ago but I be a very busy busy dingbat! This is my latest 'favorite' quilt (sheepish grin). I adore 30's repros. Dont ask me why, but I do. In August my LQS where I sometime work and teach at had a Murder Mystery. It was set in at 30's nipjoint in Chicago. It was a hoot and a blast. We were given clues as how to construct the quilt and had to find out who 'murdered' one of the characters. mine was named Sly Sleeze and I was *wiggling eyebrows*. The name of this Quilt is called Twisted Cables. I dont rember who the designer is but they did a good job. lots of 4 patches, flying geese and elongated snowballs. I entered this quilt into the local county fair for judging. the judges were BLIND! I was robbed, robbed I tell ya! no ribbon but there is always next year! The picture shows 1/4 of the quilt, it is approx 52 by 76. Perfect for this fluffy bat! thanks for dropping by, have fun visiting all the hundreds of talented quilters who happen to blog too! Keep On Stitch'n On! (mauh) Liz

I love 30's so much I buy the vintage blocks on eBay!
They have a certain whimsical charm

I agree....you were robbed! How'n the heck were those countrified judges supposed to know how rare your talent is? You did a wonderful job. Keep it up and don't forget to bribe the judges the next time :-)
