Having missed out on the Spring Quilt Festival from Park City Girl I didn't want to miss out all of the fun this fall. I have spent the last hour looking at some of the great quilts already in the festival. The quilts and their stories are amazing. The quilt that I decided to show is one that I made last year. I started it in a class last June and didn't finish it until a year later. Nothing wrong with that? I had signed up to take a class at our LQS last May, the name of the class was Stash Pot Pie. When I saw the sample I knew that I had to make the quilt. What I didn't realize at the time was that just a couple of days after the class I would be in the hospital having a hysterectomy. The surgery was unexpected, after a trip to the doctor for what I thought was a minor problem the surgery was scheduled. I was so glad that I had signed up for the class, it definitely took my mind off of having surgery. It took a couple of weeks after coming home from the hospital to start feeling like sewing. The main problem was that my sewing room is in the basement and I was supposed to go up and down stairs. Normally I would have just gone up and down the steps, I felt ok, but my husband works out of the house and he was watching me like a hawk. I had to go out side, walk through the back yard and go into the basement from the yard. At least I got a little exercise. I call this my "Recovery Quilt" All of the fabrics in the blocks were from my stash. The only fabric I had to buy was the backing. This is the quilt that I am using on the sofa when I watch TV now that the weather is getting cooler.
