Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's that time of the year again.  Amy, of Amy's Creative Side, has organized this Festival for the past few years, to coincide with the Spring and Fall Quilt Markets.


Amy's Creative Side

As you all know, I love all things applique, so it makes sense that for this year's Fall Festival, I share a photo of my favorite applique baby quilt called "Comfort Is...".  

When my daughter was a little girl she had a knitted blanket that her Nana made her, and she seemed to get so much comfort from that "blankie".  Even in the middle of summer, she would have her "blankie" wrapped around her , with beads of persperation on her forehead, but she wouldn't let it go.   She is a married lady now, but she still has her "blankie" tucked away in her memory box.

When I was designing this quilt, I had my daughter and her "blankie" in mind.  I have it put away for her first  child.

                                                           " Comfort is..."                                                         Finished quilt measures -  38" x 46"
                                                         Technique Used - Hand Applique
                                                         Machine Quilted by Lisa Seinen
                                                         Best Category - Baby Quilt

Why don't you drop by Amy's blog, the link is at the top of this post,  and have a peek at some of the fantastic quilts that have been entered this time, or better yet, take a few hours, and browse them all!

Bye for now.
