Blogger's Quilt Festival: my favourite quilt ever...

I made this quilt last winter for our family
it's the brightest, cheeriest quilt I've made.

I went down to the corner of Colombo Street
and St Asaph Street to take these photos at the cordon,
previously one of the busiest intersections in Christchurch.
Colombo Street is the main street in Christchurch.
The devastation there is incredible.
Sometimes I wonder how we will ever rebuild.

Anyway back to the quilt, this was an Old Red Barn Co quilt-a-long
quite some time ago and the simplest of patterns.

It's always being snuggled under here.

Thanks to Amy for once again organising an awesome show.

  3. The quilt is lovely. It is hard to imagine all the weather devastation around the world. It takes a picture like this to bring it all home again. Take care. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Love the bright quilt, especially the orange.

    It is still hard to comprehend the lack of rebuilding. Is any going on??? Or are they still trying to remove the rubble??

    blessings, jilly
