I applaud anybody who executes a Sue Garmen quilt in the entirety!

Railroad Crossing from Humble Quilts

Recently a reader of my blog, Donna, shared this quilt with me. She saw it on my blog and I sent her a swatch of fabric and this is her masterpiece! It was designed by Cindy Blackberg and you can get info HERE. (I'm not sure how current it is)

She got word recently that it got juried in to International Quilt Festival Chicago and will be hanging at the Houston show! I'll be sure to get a photo with it Donna!  It is gorgeous!

And ...
