I'm so excited about this spring's Blogger's Quilt Festival (hosted by Amy)--last time, I was still a quiltgawker, so it's nice to finally be on both sides of the equation. I'm so looking forward to browsing all the beautiful entries.
My first quilt--named Pink Lemonade--is still my favorite. The layout was kind of an accident, but I think I prefer it to what I had originally envisioned--and it was an great lesson in keeping calm and carrying on (something I've come to actually love about quilting, a la Gwen Marston...sometimes plans change for the better!).
I adore both the colors and the big blocks of white. And it was so satisfying to finally execute all of the steps I'd been reading and thinking about for so long...from piecing the blocks all the way through to sewing the last stitch of the binding...and of course to pulling it out of the dryer.
It was just a little bit hard to give it away...at least it went to an adorable baby girl, and of course there are always more quilts to be made.
Thanks for stopping by!
