Spring Quilt Festival 2010

After much debate I decided to enter a quilt in the
The reason I had that debate is I have a few quilts which I would consider favourites
but this one comes to the top of the list everytime I am asked this question ....

"Texas Truffle" in Chocolat by 3 Sisters.
I started this quilt in 2007 and finally finished it a year later.

This was my first appliqué project after I attended my appliqué class.. and the start of my love for appliqué. I always admired "Lone Stars" quilts and of course the fabric was a big reason why I just had to have that kit! The challenge was remarkable but well worth it!Pillow shams done and the ensemble is complete and displayed proudly below the angel headboard I painted.

  14. That is a wonderful lone star quilt! Well done! And I love your headboard! The quilt in your header is similar to the one I am featuring on this Quilt Festival. I say "similar" because I never follow a pattern completely, but it is the same quilt. Yours is beautiful!

  22. How can I say this? YUMMY !!!!!!!!

    As you have probably read in a prior post of mine on my stash - Chocolat by 3 Sisters is probably my ALL-TIME favorite collection. And I don't let anyone touch what I have left of it..LOL

    You TRULY did something worthy of me clapping on this one, Joan. I always wanted to purchase this particular Chocolat kit but was always afraid to tackle such a project.

    YOU tackled it AND CONQUERED it !! Congrats !!
