Bloggers Quilt Festival

Amy over at Park City Girl is sponsoring an online Quilt festival so I thought I'd join in on the fun.

This was my very first quilt. I used Amy Butler's Brickpath pattern. The individual blocks were pieced by hand and once each row was pieced, I used the machine to put it all together. The most time consuming part was hand-quilting it, but since it was my first quilt, it gave me a lot of stitching practice, especially since I hadn't done any sewing since I was a little girl. I absolutely love how colorful it is and love cuddling with it - so does my Hubby!

I want to make that quilt too! This is so adorable. I recognize some of that fabric from last month's block!

I was wondering where you go fabric shopping when you are in Richmond . . .

Wow - I can't believe you hand-quilted that (pieced them by hand too!)! It is beautiful...and looks like a lot of work :-)

What a way to start quilting.... my real question is when did you find the time to hand do all that? It is very beautiful and you did a great job. When do you plan to start the next one? lol

Are you by chance a southern belle? That quilt looks like it would fit in beautifully with a modernized Tara. Great quilt
