Quilt Festival Spring 2009




Today we're entering the first ever Blog Quilt Festival over at Park City Girl. Be sure and click the button in the right margin to check out other quilts in the Fest!

This is one of my favorite quilts, probably because I made it for my soon to be out (delivered!) grandson Alex. Alex is still in momma, but has dropped, so we're hoping for good news any day! Here's a close up.



By the way, today's my birthday!

Happy birthday! Maybe your grandbaby will decide to arrive today to mark the occasion? He'll soon be cozy and snug as a bug in that lovely quilt you made him.

I love your quilt. Great colors. Great design. Now I'm going to need to see if I can find that pattern, or figure out how to make a similar design. It just looks like such a fun design to work with. But you really did a great job!
