I have been away in Alberta at a wonderful wedding and have not finished any quilts in the past few weeks. (And yes, the bride & groom loved their quilt! See the quilt HERE)
However, my sister sent me this picture of a quilt made by a 16 year old friend, Sarah. I am totally impressed with the colour choices that she used for the sashing and border!
Here’s what Sarah has to say:
Yes I made this quilt last year in the quilting 4-H project. The inspiration I had for this quilt was when our family would go down to the Kitchner area to visit relatives, I would always see tons of Mennonites and they have always fasinated me. I brought the quilt this year to the 4-H Regional Fair in Thorhild and won first place which I was really happy about. I also brought it to the Westlock quilters guild show last year.
I would love for you to put it on your blog! I hope that it will motivate people of my generation to take up the hobby of quilting, a skill that has been slowly dying in the past few decades.
So Sarah – here’s your first quilt on my blog. I’m looking forward to featuring more of your quilts! To my readers: Let me know when you show this quilt to other people of Sarah’s generation and I will pass it on to her.
