Quilt notes and observations

FeaturesF053
The following information was supplied by the quiltmaker: Where did you learn the pattern? "This shows myself (seated on the right floor) and my quilting bee "The Gourmet Quilters" enjoying a day of quilting." "This is a contemporary charm quilt (no fabric used twice) with 1428 different fabrics." "I wanted to do multiple faces and bodies." How long have you been making quilts? How did you learn to quilt? "I have been making quilts since 1976. I have taken classes from both regional and nationally known quilters." What was your primary reason for entering the Lands' End contest? Do you frequently enter your quilts in competition? "I enjoy entering competition. I feel it keeps me 'on my toes' to compete with other quilters. Also it presents a deadline which forces me to accomplish the quilt wihin that timeframe."
