Edith Asbil
Which Way is Up?

Edith began working on this reversible quilt in the fall of 2010. when she first saw the pattern in a quilting magazine(source unknown)she thought to herself"what a wonderful way to use up my scraps" As it turned out, she not only ended up creating more scraps but also became extremely frustrated with the quilts progress because,as she says"all those joints were so darn hard to turn over , i was almost ready to throw the whole thing out" But, with a lot of encouragement from her husband Sid,presevere she did. She finally finished the quilt in September 2011.
She submitted it to the show, and much to her surprise,the quilt was awarded the viewers Choice Award.Congratulations, Edith!!!
