Recently Zonnah emailed me with a quilt she wanted me to feature. She is in the Snip.Sew.Send Virtual Quilting Bee and one of her fellow bee members, Ann, completed this great map quilt. Thanks, Zonnah, for pointing out this great quilt to me!
Ann sent everyone a fat quarter of Alexander Henry's "This Land is Your Land" fabric and gave the instructions: "I would like to ask for “Map” blocks. They can be interpreted as loosely as you want. It can be a map from your kitchen to your sewing machine, a map of the stars, a map of your city or state, anything you want. The same goes for technique. Embroidery, piecing, applique, painting, whatever you enjoy doing."
She included notes on the back of the quilt containing information about each person that made a block for her on printable fabric.
The finished quilt is gorgeous and each block is stunning in it's individuality!
This quilt is definitely something that Ann is going to treasure! Read more about it on her blog, Film and Thread in her two posts here and here.
Do you have a finished Quilting Bee Quilt that you want me to feature on the blog? I would love to! Email me with links to your blog posts or pictures of the finished quilt on Flickr!
