Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's time again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. 
You can find all the info you need right over here.  
Basically you choose one of your favorite quilts and share it with everyone. 
 Did I say there are prizes involved?

I called this one the Water Quilt. 
 I used a lot of wateresque fabrics in it and the quilting is done with mermaids, as is the back.
  OK enough chatter, here is some eye candy.


I am choosing to share a quilt that was a LONG time in the making.  
I made one for a friend of my daughter's and then decided I liked it so much I needed to make one for my own daughter too. 
 If you know me at all you know how much I love all things aqua, or turquoise or teal, and when you combine that with lime greens and white, it positively makes me swoon!

This is the back with all of it's mermaidy goodness


There are lots of bubbles in the borders 

 

You can see the mermaid quilting in the photo above this. 
 For some reason Blogger (or maybe my computer) is not letting me load my photos the way I want them, but at least you do get to see them!

This is how I chose to do the label.


Now the quilt is all rolled up and ready to gift! 
 I will be taking it to North Carolina on Tuesday to give to my DD2!  
I hope she loves it as much as I do!!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to go and visit the other quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
