I have one more entry for this years Bloggers Quilt Festival. This quilt I am entering into the large quilts category. I posted about this quilt a couple of times last year (here, and here) if you are interested in the process of how this quilt was made. It was quite a labor of love. It is finally done, and I have to say I am so Happy with the result. I finished it by quilting a heart in the area of our home town, Muskegon, MI, (by hand) then echoed the heart out across the state. The quilting in the areas of the lakes is simple wavey horizontal lines. I suppose now I need to make a map quilt of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as an homage to my alma mater Michigan Technological University (Go Huskies!). Now, no matter where we roam, we will have a little piece of home to take with us and keep us warm.
