My Favorite Quilt- Meadowsweet Dresden

I've been enjoying the "My Favorite Quilt" series on Sew Mama Sew. It took some time to decide on my personal favorite, Meadowsweet Dresden.  

Tell us about your favorite quilt. When did you make it? 
I was surprised to discover that it is already three years old, completed in March 2011.

What do you like best about the quilt? 
I still love everything about this quilt, especially the fabric by Sandi Henderson.

How did you grow as a quilter while making it? 
I stretched myself with the quilting and it took an entire retreat weekend to complete. The background fill took forever! I used some quilting designs I hadn't tried before. Perfect? Not by a longshot, but I'm proud of it.

Have your shown it at any quilt shows or entered it in any contests? 
It was entered in the Ninigret Quilt Guild show in 2011 and won a 2nd place ribbon for Mixed Technique (applique, piecing and embellishment).

Where is the quilt now?
It hangs on my kitchen wall during spring and summer months.

Hop on over to Sew Mama Sew to check out more favorites and to add yours to the linkup. (There's a link up on each favorite quilt post.)
