Bloggers' Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side


The quilt I'm sharing for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival happens to be my favorite quilt to date - The Hometown Charity Quilt!  


This quilt is special to me because it was donated to raise money for cancer research.  Our cousin's wife's sister passed away from a rare type of brain cancer last year which happened to be similar to the type that my aunt passed away from years ago - small world right.  They hosted a fundraiser earlier this month to raise money for cancer research and I donated this quilt to be auctioned off.  As much as I love making quilts, one person only needs so many, and it brought me a lot of joy to be able to use my hobby to help raise money for charity.  

Now some quilty details:

Pattern - Starry Eyed for Moda Bake Shop by Angela of Fussy Cut
Fabric - Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda
Size - 62" x 78"
Quilted - By me in an all over loopy design

You can find my original post about this quilt here.

Be sure to head over the Bloggers' Quilt Festival and check out all of the entries!!!
