My Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

I made this quilt for my friend Heather as a Birthday gift.

She had a really hard year and I though she would like a quilt made especially for her. Heather is a learning to quilt and she already made a quilt for her nephew. I am very proud of her because she even quilted it on her Singer she bought on clearance years ago. Heather is inspired to quilt more and she even upgrade to a Baby Lock machine witch I think will help her since the Singer didn't have a 1/4'' foot.

Thank you Amy for organizing the Blogger's Quilt Festival for third time! There are more then 600 entries already at the Amy's Creative Side: Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010. If you have some spare time go check it out and get some inspiration!

You can read my original post here.

I love the backing of the quilt!

Here are some close ups of the quilting. I used panto with Butterflies, tupips and flowers..

Have a great Holiday weekend friends!

Show and Tell

Last month I was in charge of out Club meeting at my LQS. The first quilt is made by Stacey for Quilt for kids! I am so proud of Stacey and she said she was inspirited by me. She wasn't done with the quilting when I took the picture, she did crosshatching on the quilt. I am very excited because Stacey said she is working on a second quilt now! Way to go Stacey!

Mary Alice made this adorabel name tag for herself for the guild meetings.

Judy showed her BOM finished quilt. She quilted it in a ditch with light color and used the same on the back, but now she decided to rip it off and redo it, because she didn't like the light color showing on the burgundy backing. I don't know if I will do that as it's a lot of work, but the quilt is worthy.

Judy was very creative, she said she wanted a scrappy looking quilt, but didn't have many lights so she stamped some of her fabrics. How creative is that! She also did a beautiful hand aplique on the blocks.

Pat Christ showed this quilt done in reproduction colors. I loved how she opened all the seams! I often do that too. Coming from clothing sewing the seams lay more flat.

Pat also showed this show stopper! She was inspired by a red and white quilt in a magazine and she made it with cheddar and blue.

Pat also did a demo of a new ruler she got, but this post is getting too long so I will show that later!

Have a great weekend and hopefully get some time to sew!
