MY HAPPY PLACE

I designed this quilt a couple months ago after spending the day with friends at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival here in Virginia. I had so much fun creating this. I mostly used orphan blocks for the border and made a few others to fill in spaces. It is to hang in my sewing room if I ever get it back from the quilt shop here in town. They keep a nice supply of my designs and samples. Most quilters hardly need a pattern for this though. It is just bits and pieces of things on hand. Can you tell there are three little faux American flags? Also left from another project. :0)) Oh dear, is my double chin showing?

Wonderful quilts, Marcie! Nothing beats that blue and white combo.

Thanks for the compliments on my last endeavor--RWB Friendship Star Chain. Got you bookmarked!

Very cute. I was at the Mid Atlantic Quilt Fest too. My Mom lives in Newport News and I get back frequently to visit.

Hi Marcie, I love this wall hanging. Would it be ok with you if I made one for myself--kind of copying but kind of not??? Does that make sence?
I'm loving you blog. Can't wait to read more. I, too, will be back.
