I love it when the Blogger's Quilt Festival comes around :) I have some more recent quilts that I've finished, but there is one I want to share that I made a little over and year and a half ago because I never managed to get any stellar pictures of it back then and because it's super Springy--perfect for the Spring festival :)
When I set out to make each of my three kids a bed quilt, I decided to start with my middle child ... because, well, she's in the middle and she deserves to be first every now and then, right? This quilt is the Annie's Garden pattern from the book, Material Obsession and it is probably the most time consuming quilt I've ever made.
I started out hand quilting the whole thing, but as of then, I had never done that before and got intimidated. I ended up machine quilting all the straight lines and hand quilting around all the applique. The hand quilting really made all the flowers and hearts pop out a little bit, so I'm so glad I did that!
This is Layla with her quilt this past January, on her fourth birthday...
I cannot wait to peruse all the entries in the quilt festival!!! Cheers :)
