Quilt Festival

While checking out some of my favorite blogs, I ran across Sew Take A Hike's entry in the online Quilt Festival. Her Fruit Salad quilt is wonderful!---I love the colors and the shapes of her squares. My first real attempt at quilting was last summer. I ordered a couple of Anna Maria Horner charm packs and put together this quilt. While the colors don't really match my house, I LOVE the fabrics and since it is my first quilt, I decided to keep it. Perhaps one of these days I'll redecorate a room to match it! :-)

I've made a couple gift quilts since then,
and have one "in the works". As soon as I can get this office/guest room under control I want to get back to working on it. In the meantime, I'm going to go throw my turquoise quilt into the wash to get that crinkly goodness!!

All of your quilts are just lovely. I am especially fond of that last one. I can't wait to start another one myself. A baby quilt. For a girl. Not sure who yet, I just need me some pink and yellow :)
