Spring Quilters Festival

 It's time for a quilt show!  I love the fun of a quilt show given through Amy's Creative Side Blog. (See bottom of this post for the link.)
I've chosen my new favorite quilt to enter:
Whrilin' Dervish is the pattern and it started as a color challenge for February, but I didn't get it done by the month's end.

I then sent it to my friend Tommye in Moab for the quilting and just asked her to do her creative stuff and she didn't disappoint me a bit.  I love how she quilted it.






My earlier blog about this quilt and the meaning of Dervish is  HERE

Thanks to Amy's Creative Side for hosting another quilt show! http://amyscreativeside.com/2012/05/18/bloggers-quilt-festival-spring-2012/

A Whirling Dervish is a person who uses dance for prayer(I just learned that) and this quilt would make any God happy to recieve it! Beautiful!
