Favorite Quilt

Amy is hosting an amazing quilt festival and is asking people to share their favorite quilt. My favorites are not always the best for fanciest (this one is very simple) but based more on what I learned in the process. So here is the one I want to share about my journey in quilting.

Back at valentines, I fell in love with the valentines fabric line by moda "Love is in the Air". I wanted a special valentine feel for my holiday display area. The first thing I made didn't quite give the look or feel I wanted so this was try #2. I finally got it right. Quilting is always a creative process and not everyting turns out right but that is part of the challenge and beauty of it. This is what I wrote that I learned from this particular quilting experience....
Lesson Learned: Things often don't turn out how we imagined or wanted but, we can still enjoy the fruits of our labors. It may be in a different way but still to be enjoyed. Also if we will do just a bit more work, what we wanted and imagined can also happen too!

This is the original quilt. It is not that I don't like it, it's just not the look and feel I wanted for my diplay area. This will be a very loved and used quilt in my family room area. I named it "Looking for Love" and it reminds me to find and give love to everyone I see.
