Amy at Park City Girl is hosting a Bloggers’ Quilt Festival again. Thank you, Amy, for organizing this tour.
This time I want to show you the quilt that bought me a ticket to Houston in 2000.
I had just finished my Kameleon Quilt number 1, and my head was spinning with all the possible variations I could do with this concept when a Norwegian magazine announced a pillow contest. The first prize would be a 10 day journey to the US, – first to Houston Quilt festival and then on to Bird-in-Hand in the middle of Amish country in Pennsylvania.
I entered the quilt below, which actually won the first prize. My husband was lucky to buy himself a ticket in the same group, so we could go together. It was a great experience.
The quilt is mounted as a pillow, but it can also work well as a wall hanging. The video below shows how the flaps can be opened and display different flower motifs:
Every autumn when there is talk of Houston, I think back on the wonderful trip we had 9 years ago.
Please go over to Park City Girl to see a list of all the other participants.
