It's time to celebrate quilts! This is my first time participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival and I would like to thank Amy. Sew.... "Thank you for hosting, Amy!" And thank you to all her wonderful sponsors who have made this year's festival possible!
Sew Retro, Baby!
I sure have enjoyed reading through many of the posts of past entries, from the last three years, and am sew excited to be a part of this year's festival!
If there was any one fabric color I had collected in abundance, it was pinks. Some dark, some plain, some polka dotted. Some with a touch of green.
A pink, grey and white polka dot flannel was purchased for the backing.
This close up shows the detail of the simple outline quilting along each seam.
I chose my favorite machine sewn binding method, which I found on Aunt Marti's 52 quilts blog. It has become my signature binding! It did take me a while to decide on just what fabric to use, but when I seen this checkered candy cane, I knew she was just the one.
The online quilting community has given me the inspiration to do what I love - and love what I do. Thanks to all quilting bloggers for sharing their projects, their ideas, and that love of quilting with others.
