Bloggers Quilt Festival - Spring 2011

Are you ready to see lot's and lot's of GORGEOUS quilts? Thank you to Amy over at Amy's Creative Side for hosting this wonderful event. As many of us won't be at Quilt Market, we have this festival to enjoy.

I'm going to show you a quilt which I made last year. I used the Love U range of fabrics by Deb Strain, so I've been ultra imaginative and called it the "Love U quilt".


This was the first quilt I made with didn't follow any sort of pattern. It grew all on it's own, which in itself is a wonderful thing.

It's not an intricate quilt design,  but it does have personality.


It has raw edge appliqued flowers and is quilted all over in a meandering pattern.


My little girl wanted this quilt, desperately! But alas, it went to another little girl.
I hope she has loved it as much as I loved making it :-)


So do yourself a favour and pop on over to Amy's blog to see all of the other quilts which are on show this week. You will be inspired. I guarantee it!!

  8. This is such a gorgeous quilt. I haven't been brave enough yet to make a quilt without a plan in my head first - and usually on paper too - so I admire your fab result. Reminds me I must try raw edge applique too.
