Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010

First of all WELCOME! I'm glad you stopped by.

This is my first quilt festival that I'm participating in and I'm very excited!

It was hard for me to decide which quilt to enter into the festival, so I decided to only go with quilt(s) that have only been worked on this year, which that helps elimate some of my enteries.

First up is the quilt that I made for my Aunt Fay...she was only person in the family that did not get a quilt made by my grandma (her mom). I worked on this quilt for about 3 or 4 months before I got all completed and just yesterday it was mailed out to her, making trek from Indiana to Arizona.

Nature's Notebook Quilt


Second is a quilt that I made out of charm squars and jelly roll strips that were purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics....I thought I was getting a really great deal, because the prices were so cheap, but it turned out the the JR only had about 20 strips and the same with the charm pack. On the flip side though I was able to find coordinating fabric for the backing.

Exotic Quilt


Third is the quilt that I made for one of my nephews....I made this quilt twice since I had two nephews on the way, but only took a photo of the first one.....hopefully I can get a picture of the second quilt with my nephew, Landyn, enjoying it....he due to make his feature debut tomorrow, May 22, 2010.

I have a fondness for blue and orange together. Perhaps it's my affiliation with Boise State University.

In answer to the question you left on my blog...the pattern caught my eye b/c it was the first time I'd seen a single motif for the whole quilt rather than just 18" squares. And I fell in love with the crab and snails.

Interesting quilts. Absolutely love Nature's Notebook.

So sweet to make a quilt for your aunt because your grandmother couldn't! I definitely understand that. Oh and I'm originally from Indiana as well!

Thanks for stopping by my little blog and commenting on my string quilt! I love the colors in it too!

Great quilts and lots of great colour. Like the block you used in Nature's Chorus. Great fabrics and colours for your nephews's quilt.

Love the variety of the quilts and your header (looks like my corner too!).

Wonderful quilts, but what I love most is the name and header of your blog. How funny. How realistic--if we would all admit it.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I loved the Storybook Quilt challenge.
