Quilt Festival – Hand Quilted

For the hand quilted category of the quilt festival at Amy’s Creative Side I choose my hand pieced and hand quilted lap quilt called “Autumn in Tokyo”. The eight pointed stars were my traveling companions for about 15 years. Love that it is now done and used as a cozy reading quilt in my friend’s home. It is a tribute to her childhood adventures in Japan. I hope you will vote for my quilt!!

Looks like I left a few lint pieces on my back as I took photos. : (
