Blogger's Quilt Festival 2012

I am so excited to be able to join this year as I finally have a blog :)



I am going to share the quilt I made for my baby niece. I chose this one as I love everything about it! Sunkissed is still one of my favourite fabric lines. This is my second quilt I have ever made.


This is my helper Opie making sure I basted everything correctly.


As my niece was born in March my outside photos all involve snow lol.

I cut into the curved ends of all the quarter circles so when washed they frayed and became super soft. I was so excited this summer, when I met my niece for the first time, to see her using her quilt!

Mairead's Quilt
*Quilt Measurements: 36x45
*Special Techniques used, if any: Raw edge cutting and fraying
*Quilted by…: me! I used straight line quilting to accent each fan... I used hot pink thread.
*Best category – 1 to 3 categories max: Baby quilt and Home Machine Quilted.

I would like to add that it is not my pattern, but is from a magazine. Unfortunately I do not recall which one.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about this quilt and will vote for me when you have a moment!
