Story Quilts with Color, Charm and Interest-Great Job Liz!

I am always giddy when I get to see a story quilt that is in the making and it is fun to post them here. Everyone has a different story and they are all unique and fun for so many reasons. Many of you know my flight attendant friend Susan Typpi. Well, Susan and her friend Liz came to my LaConner quilt show at the LaConner Quilt Museum and Liz was so taken with story quilts that she went home with my books that belonged to Susan, read them cover to cover and Susan helped her begin her very own story quilt. I think it is quite wonderful as I used to can and so did my Mother. The quilt is colorful and fun and I knew you would enjoy seeing it.
It was fun to have two new quilts to post this week- the one Liz did here and the one Pam Toombs did (scroll down). How about you? Are you ready to tell the world something about you? I am teaching a story quilt class in upper Wisconsin in October and would love to meet you there. It goes without saying that soon people will be flying in to start their very own story quilts at my retreat the 13th. There is still room for 2 people. The tiaras this year are something quite special and I bought all kinds of prizes this weekend. Hope you consider doing a story about YOU or someone or something you LOVE! Liz, this quilt is really fun!

That is darling. Thanks so much for sharing all these quilts with us as it gives me food for thought. Of course, now I can't decide what I want to do because you have given me so many great ideas. Who would have thought about canning as an idea for a quilt. I love it!

LOVE Liz's quilt!!! (I actually bought a new canning funnel just yesterday!) That chicken and the curtains are just too cute! This is definitely a quilt that makes me smile! Great job, Liz!!! :-)
