Bloggers Quilt Festival

This time around, I am entering a baby quilt. I have been hand quilting for so many other people this year; I haven't got much of my own finished.  But that's ok......

This quilt measures 39 x 49.....and it was the first project I did with my Go! Baby....which I love.
I FMQ it, which is a task for me...lol. It is the largest piece I have machine quilted so far.  I am a hand quilter; but learning.

I also love the vibrant color in this little quilt.  I quilted swirls and flowers all over it and added a few circles to the back; as you can see here.

I hope everyone enjoys Quilt Festival this Fall.....check it out....here.

  10. Love the layout and colors! The swirls inside the dots is a wonderful way to bring out the circles. I like the finished product of hand quilting more so than machine quilting, but your choices of flowers and swirls are delightful. You did a wonderful job!
