Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

/ Friday, 29 October 2010 /
Love Birds
I had hoped to have a new quilt to show for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, but it wasn't in the stars.  Instead, I will show Love Birds, which is my most recent completed quilt (excepting the Quilt Only a Father Could Love, which is named that for a good reason).  I made Love Birds for a friend's wedding, and the original post is linked here.  In this post, I'll just show the photos.  Have a look at these, and then go back and look at all the other amazing quilts in the Festival.  Amy has done another amazing job bringing bloggers together from around the world!

Beautiful quilt for a wedding. For the Blogger's quilt festival, I just submitted a 'pickle dish' quilt. It has been my favorite pattern. Then I just noticed your blog's name - - did you make a pickle dish and loved it so much that you named your blog after it?

{ Karen } on: 3 November 2010 at 07:36 said...
