Blogger's Quilt Fesival: Happy Blocks

Amy's Creative Side - Blogger's Quilt Festival
Yay!  It's that time again.  I had so much fun participating in the Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Well Amy, is at it again!! Uniting quilty bloggers everywhere!  Click on the button to see many many more quilts.  Wait!  Don't go anywhere yet.  Check out mine first...  : )



This quilt was finished just in time for the festival.  It started as a stack of fabric in May, and quickly grew to blocks and then I got stuck and set it aside.  Sashing was a word that used to make me uncomfortable.  I loved the look, but I wasn't very good at it.  I decided enough of that and I got my sash on and finished up this quilt.


This quilt was made for someone in my family (who hasn't seen it yet!) who is always smiling and a joy to be around.  These colors remind me of her so much.  She very sweetly asked earlier this year if she could have one of my quilts someday.  Heck yeah!  Any quilter would jump at those words right??


I love polka dot bindings!  This one is Ta Dot in Ocean by Michael Miller.


Fresh from the dryer and ready for a nap.  ; )  

Ok now you can go check out the other quilters, but please come back soon!!  -A

  39. Very pretty! I know exactly what you mean about the sashing and how sometimes the quilt process goes on hold at that point. Like Denise, the polka-dot binding is adorable.
