Letter Carriers Quilt

 I had a few moments yesterday to walk 
the Quilt Show part 
of Quilt Festival here in Houston.
Sooo many fabulous quilts.
I took A LOT of pictures 
and will share with you as I have time.
 One of my most favorites was
Letter Carriers
by Janet Stone
Overland Park, Kansas
 1st Place Ribbon
in Mixed Techniques Category
 So many beautiful and exactly crafted techniques
were used in this quilt.
 Janet wrote:
"A love of basket blocks sparked the idea
to try to create some by weaving bias tape strips.
An additional 26 pieced Basket blocks in the border
are embellished with
26 letter beads.
Prairie Points, hand covered buttons, and
half-Penny circle edging are just a few of
the highlights."
 Janet Stone is also the designer of 
the Block of The Month quilt this next year
for 
The
Quilt Show
with Alex Anderson and Ricky Timms
