This is my first entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. Last time round I had such good fun hopping blogs and reading about all the wonderful quilts that are made. So I decided to join in on the fun and share a quilt with you all.
You can read about this quilt here as well, I'm sorry about the poor quality of the pictures, this was when I first started blogging and didn't have much experience in taking nicer pictures of my quilts yet!
I picked this quilt because this was the quilt that sparked my quilting addiction. I started quilting 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I made him a patchwork blanket and a baby quilt and had a go at some larger sized quilts. None of wich turned out great but still, I enjoyed making those quilts. When I started making this quilt I hadn't sewn in such long time that I had to look under a pile of old fabrics and dig out my machine first!
This quilt was made for my friend's daughter Lola. She came over one day and saw some pillows I'd made and loved them. So I showed her some of the quilts I had done and she asked me to make one for her daughter.
I started off with a different design, pieced the entire quilt even started to quilt it but I just hated it! So I decided to start over again, and I'm really glad I did.
I drew this design on tracing paper, taped it to my window and traced it on a piece of white fabric. It was my first applique and embroidery quilt and I was so pleased with how it turned out.
A lot of time and love went into stitching and hand quilting this. But my friend absolutely loves this quilt and I'm sure this is one that will be kept in their family for many years to come!
I've been on a non stop sewing spree since :-D
Thanks for stopping by!
