Bloggers' Quilt Festival



What fun! I haven't had the opportunity to join a quilt festival after having left my quilting guild five years ago.

It didn't take me too much time to decide which quilt to enter; of course I would enter A's Alphabears quilt.

I started the quilt around January 2010, somewhere around 12 weeks pregnant. My goal was to have it finished and hanging in the baby's room before he or she was born. I chose rainbow colors for my rainbow baby.

I didn't quite reach my goal. The quilt top was finished and taped to the wall in baby's room on my due date.



It took me until A's first birthday to get it pinned and completely quilted. So...it was only a year late. This is certainly my favorite quilt.
