Wishing for a Vacation

Destiny in the Bahamas, 58 x 76 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2010

Putting on a two-week quilt festival is a tremendous amount of work. It was worth it though, and I think that my grandmother Clara Ford would be happy to know that her memory is honored with a joyful quilt festival.

With the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival officially over, I  wish I could take a vacation. I can’t, so the next best thing is to cuddle up under one of my vacation quilts with a glass of champagne. I will savor the thrill of a job well done before I dare allow myself to think about the 2011 Atlanta Quilt Festival. Check out some of my wonderful memories on the Clara Ford Foundation Facebook page.

Shown here is Destiny in the Bahamas. It is my commemorative quilt from the 2009  spring break cruise India, Brittany and I took to the Bahamas. We cruised on the Carnival ship Destiny.
