The 2015 Atlanta Quilt Festival, my personal labor of love, was the best ever! The exhibit showcased over 100 quilts. We had more classes than ever before, and they were led by nationally known teachers. We had large crowds, great PR from the Atlanta Journal and the exhibit was showcased a month rather than the two weeks it lasted in previous years.

I am so grateful to all my old friends (especially those who serve on the Clara Ford Foundation Advisory Board and the members of the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild) and new friends who believe in my dream and come along for the joyful journey. I am grateful for the new things I learned from the amazing workshop leaders — Joy Peters, Latifah Shakir, Nina Moore, Cookie Patterson and Gyleen Fitzgerald. I am grateful that Holly Anderson, certified quilt appraiser, was able to tell me how much my quilt is worth and that Hammonds House Museum continues to be my partner.

The 2015 Atlanta Quilt Festival has truly been a month long joyful journey. So today I am sharing my newest quilt called Grateful Journey. It is listed for sale in my ETSY Studio Store.

Do you have something in your life that you do purely for the joy of it? I hope so. If not, share my joy each August as I celebrate my love of quilts.
