Quilt Festival Entry - Spring 2009








I love this quilt for many reasons. It's lively and fun, the colors are sweet. It's the first "grandchild" quilt I ever made. This quilt was designed for Evelyn while in utero.




I wanted something along the lines of an I spy. Each center was fussy cut and lovingly stitched in the same matter.




This quilt is mostly hand quilted (I love handwork). The border is machine quilted and I would love to get better at it. It's fun to do.




I've made other grandchild quilts since (I'm a lucky Mimi) and each is different. The back of this quilt is pictured below.



Please leave me a comment if you have a moment. I'd love to hear from you.
