Show and tell…

I love seeing quilts made from our patterns. It is so very nice to see how quilters make the designs their own. This lovely quilt was made by Laurie LaFountain from our Whimsical Quilt Garden pattern.


Laurie shared the following about her quilt:

I thought I would share a picture of my quilt that I recently entered in my local quilt guild’s show. I had never put a quilt in a show before, but my 9 year old grandson urged me to enter this. I admit I had to rush the quilting portion to get it finished in time, and the judge fairly noted that I omitted quilting the sashing and my binding could have been neater. But I won the only ribbon awarded by the National Quilters Assoc., I was awarded a blue ribbon by the judge, I won the vendors choice ribbon and the viewers choice ribbon. I was shocked and thrilled. I will treasure this quilt and the ribbons forever. And my grandson will inherit the quilt.

Laurie, you made a wonderful quilt and I’m so happy that you entered it in the show! Your grandson sounds like a very smart young man :-). May you have many more happy stitches!

  1. Laurie, the quilt is so beautiful. The fabrics are so cheery looking. It just makes you happy looking at the quilt. Thank you for sharing with us, and congratulations on your awards. I love when grandchildren give compliments, you know they are for real.


  2. Laurie, I am just in love with your quilt! I’m not surprised at all with your winning three ribbons! Now I’ll have to order the book and get busy


  3. Laurie’s version of the Whimsical Garden is delightful. A worthwhile quilt show entry. An NQA ribbon is on honor. Glad she shared quilt with you and you shared with us.
