Blogger's Quilt Festival 2011

That's right it's Blogger's Quilt Festival time.  Amy has hosted this amazing festival for the past little while and if you haven't heard about it be prepared to be blown away by all the inspiration out there!  We are supposed to choose one quilt to share with everyone and tell the story behind the quilt.  I had the amazing opportunity to be the person selected to put together a very special quilt.  A group of Flickr peeps got together, virtually and everyone was assigned a color.  The block style was chosen and we all went to work.

Here is my block.

My friend Pauline made a block also.

OK I've teased you enough here is the entire quilt!

Project Special Delivery


I chose the layout and put the top together, my friend Liz did the quilting and my friend Pauline embroidered the label and did the binding. Know who we sent it off in the mail to? Heather Ross!!! She was expecting her first baby and we thought it would be perfect for her. We had to use some of Heather's fabric in our block too. Here is the label and you can see the quilting better here too.
Project Special Delivery
I designed the label and the saying was one of Heather's. Pauline did a great job hand embroidering the label too.

I hope you have enjoyed my quilt and the story that goes along with it. Thanks for stopping by!!
