I'm honored to participate in this years Blogger's Quilt Festival and very excited to have new viewers visiting my blog. It would mean a lot to me if you would leave a comment so that I know you've stopped by.
Edited to add: I cannot guarantee links on archived posts. Very often these can change. More information about past Blogger's quit festivals can be found at Amy's Creative Side Blog http://amyscreativeside.com/bloggers-quilt-festival/. Again, no guarantee that this link will work forever.
Additionally, I strive my best to answer every question I receive on my blog but I cannot respond to inquires with no return email address noted (i.e., anonymous).
For the quilt festival, I'm sharing my last completed quilt, which is something I whipped up for my daughter's school auction last month. Per my usual procrastination, it was a rush-rush project.
My purpose wasn't to make something artsy or trendy, but to make a pretty quilt that would hopefully appeal to the general buying public. I chose cheerful fabrics from my stash that weren't gender specific and managed to use what I had on hand with the exception of the backing fabric. The hand-stitching of the motifs while time consuming (maybe not the smartest choice for an auction quilt) is something I really enjoy. The motifs are traced in pencil - I used a window - before the quilt is assembled and then stitched by hand after I had stitched in the ditch around the blocks with my sewing machine. Despite being in a rush, I really enjoyed the process of putting this little quilt together.
