My Fall 2009 Quilt Festival Entry

Amy at Park City Girl is again hosting a Quilt Festival.  Welcome to my entries for the Fall 2009 Festival!  Click on the link button on the left side of this post and you'll be guided to her blog where you can find sooooo many wonderful quilts for your visual enjoyment.  I'm sure you'll find some very classy and professional looking quilts there and mine in no way will compete with those!  But I'll show a couple that I've actually fully completed this summer/fall.





This is the newest grandbaby's quilt that I completed back in June shortly before his birth in July.  I used Jungle Jumble fabrics by Michael Miller and the Wild Thing pattern by Thimble Blossoms.  The colors and design looked great in his orange/zoo animal themed nursery.  There are more photos back on this June blog post.   All the quilting on this one was done by me and although nothing fancy, it feels great to be able to say I completed the entire project.  I'm a little embarassed by the photo above though, as it does show a little mistake with the crooked backing.  Oh well, it was so fun to make and the little Peanut will not care! 

 


I just posted about this quilt a few days ago but worth repeating.  Originally not my favorite quilt, but it has been growing on me and I feel that I did a pretty good job on it.  The quilting was done by a LAQ though.  This was a Block of the Month quilt for 2008 at Among Friends Quilt Shop.   I had never done a quilt with the blocks set on point and have to admit a little frightened to cut that one block in half ! 

So if your day is as rainy and dreary as ours is here in Southern Indiana, you can spend hours lost in browsing through the multitude of entries over at Park City Girl.  HAVE FUN!!

Beautiful quilts Janet! I love the baby quilt -- crooked backing and all LOL! I'm trying to figure out how I'll get a picture of my quilt in the dismal light that we'll have by the time I get home -- should have planned ahead!
