Blogger's Quilt Festival

Hello All~and welcome to my blog. As with all of you I am so wishing I was at Quilt Market instead of home here in Maine. My quilt that I am going to share with you this year is my favorite original design so far, and it is my largest quilt to date also. I call it Stars and Strips.

I entered it into a quilting contest for McCall's Quilting Magazine. You can see it here. I did not make it past the initial cut, but that's ok, I have this beautiful quilt to show, and it has a special story!! It measures 60" x 72". The fabric is Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. I love Bonnie and Camille's fabric lines so much, they are my absolute favorites! (So I have my Cotton Blossoms Quilt, and my Simple Abundance Quilt, and soon will have me some Bliss Fabric) I am really proud of myself, doing something of this magnitude is big for me, pretty amazing!!!

I would really love to thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a great weekend!!

What's been going on around here....

I have been working on these little darlings~LOVE them!!
I also have finished another original quilt design, and just need to piece the backing, layer, and quilt. Then finish writing up the pattern to be able to list for sale. And, last night I started a new design on my handy dandy graph paper, more details soon~

until then....
