Blogger's Quilt Festival

Thanks to Amy's Creative Side's Quilt Show I'm entering my first Quilt show. Online, so you can all enjoy it to. Be sure to check out the others!
 This Quilt was one of my biggest projects and BC (Before Children) 

The quilt was made for a dear friend of our as a wedding gift. It stared with the watercolor heart. I had just heard of water color quilts and wanted to try something small. Then I added borders till I got the size I wanted. The stars and flying geese were added to make the right bed size. I had a horrible time with the star points so I appliqued hearts over the centers and LOVE how it turned out! Through the process I learned a LOT about Quilting. Mostly about planning ahead. LOL I had lots of advice from my Mother-in-Love who is an excellent Quilter. 



  1. So simple and yet so delicately pretty! I have three boys, now 16,14,and 10. I hear you on the fatigue! Hang in there! Be kind to your self and keep enjoying being mom!!!!!!!

  2. What a beautiful quilt. The colors look so nice together. I like the contrast of a soft round heart with triangles and stars. You did a nice job. You should give us more pictures next time. How nice that you have a quilting mentor, your MIL. Thanks for sharing.

  3. So sweet. Love the heart patches. Some of the very best designs come from "fixes." It is very creative and gives it that artistic sparkle! I hope you continue quilting.

  4. Great job with your quilt! :)
