Gees Bend Quilt!

Sometimes I get lucky and this is one of those times, that I am so glad I did.
I entered a contest at We Love Quilting for my choice of a Gees Bend Quilt Kit.
I have always loved the Gees Bend quilts and was totally thrilled to have won a kit to make my own.
Not only did Chris send me the kit, but I also received a beautiful tote with a Gees Bend design on it and lots of pens and key chains. What a wonderful box to get on a rainy day:)

I love the blue shades, they are so much nicer in person, really rich and deep shades.



Here is the pattern I will be making, though we know, I tend to put my own touches in sometimes, so we shall see how it turns out;) I can't wait to get my machine back, so I can start on it. Also, be sure to visit Chris' blog, she is running a new contest for a box of goodies and I am sure it will be filled with wonderful quilting items.

I had the opportunity to view the traveling exhibit of these quilts. With such limited resources fabulous quilts were created.
