Bloggers Quilt Festival


Amy at Park City Girl is hosting a Blogger's Quilt Festival  running through next week.  There will be lots of giveaways, quilting and crafting. Each person joining has to post about their favorite quilt and the story behind it...so I chose this quilt below that you all have seen before. I have only made a few quilts, but this one is by far my favorite! I love waking up to the beautiful Amy Butler prints every morning. My mom got me the strips for Christmas one year and over the holiday break my sister, mom and I went to a small quilting retreat center where we quilted all day and night and then slept there. It was so much fun, and I was able to finish piecing the quilt together in that 24 hour time! The pictures are not very bright..but I added one with little Will in there...he looks so little in that picture. :) So go check out the festival over at Amy's blog, there are so many fun quilts to look at. Happy Quilting week!

Very lovely quilt. How fun that you were able to get together with your family for a little quilting getaway.

I wish I could see your house...I think it must be FILLED with color, and you just couldn't help but be happy there. :)

I love it, and especially that you and your mom were able to do it together. Sounds like fun. Those pictures of Will and his first banana are perfect.

I really love this quilt! It looks so great on that bed. I especially like the single blocks in the sashing. Great work!

I love your quilt! It looks like we a have a few things in common-I follow alot of your links and I have a baby boy who looks to be about the same age as Will (I also love my husband and Jesus!). I'm number 151 on the Quilt festival link list.
Happy quilting!
