Bloggers Quilt Festival


The Spring 2010 Bloggers Quilt Festival is now underway, thanks to Amy's Creative Side. I stumbled upon her blog and have had a great time browsing all the blogs and quilt entries, it is truly inspiring! I have not posted to my blog in ages, and this was the perfect opportunity for me to update my look, share a quilt I made, and make a new personal resolution to write nearly every day (well try anyway).

The quilt I'm sharing was made in 2005, and because I'm so busy working, sewing and creating for other people, I rarely get to make anything for myself! This is one of two baby quilts I made in the same style and fabrics. The original was made for my husband's cousin who had a baby boy very prematurely. I loved it so much I made one for myself to keep. The fabric selection is also special to me, it reminds me of my Hilda, a smooth fox terrier who lived to be more than 15 years old. Hilda lived with me before I met my husband and had a family! She is still missed by all of us.

Head on over to Amy's Creative Side to see the rest of the entries in the Bloggers Quilt Festival!

  1. Very sweet quilt! I like the movement it has. ; ) Quilts hold wonderful memories and treasures in the stitches we make, the fabrics we choose and the design we create. I've enjoyed your story and quilt! Thanks for sharing. ; )

  2. Awww - what a great quilt. It is so wonderful that you were able to find the fabric that reminded you of your dog. We just lost one of our pugs, Abby, a few weeks ago. We still have that hollow feeling in the pits of our stomachs when we think of her. I'll have to keep my eyes open for some pug fabric. This is a really wonderful idea!
