Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

My entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side is my Pretty Patchwork Quilt.  It's made from Soiree by Moda, and a few scraps of fabric by Amy Butler and Michael Miller.  

Although it is very simple, this quilt is special to me for many reasons....


It was one of the first quilts I posted on this blog, and I remember being very scared about putting my work out there for people to see.  


It was also the first quilt I quilted with loops instead of the stipples or straight lines I had used before.  I love how it turned out!


Finally, it was the first quilt I sold on Etsy, which was a huge accomplishment for me!  You should have seen me dancing like a fool in my living room! :)


Do you have a quilt that you are especially fond of?  Then don't waste any more time!  Go enter it in the Blogger's Quilt Festival so we can all see it!


Thanks for stopping by my little ol' blog!  Come back any time. ;)

  14. You have a really good eye for colour - those very simple quilts can look really ordinary but yours is really fabulous - I wish I had that eye for colour. And that bigger patch is a fabulous idea, really clever.
