I definitely wanted to participate in the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Amy at Park City Girl Blog is hostessing this event. You must run over to her blog and look at the ever growing list of quilts. She has prizes and there are sponsors...GREAT FUN!!
I picked this 'BONNIE' quilt because, well, actually it is THE ONLY completely finished quilt I have done, so it should be my favorite right? I have lots of flimsy waiting to be hand quilted....but not finished. This was a gifted baby quilt I went 'round and 'round with. I didn't have or use a pattern. I started it 3 different times, ripping out and starting over again. I finally gave up and settled for this lay out. I free pieced the name Bonnie using Tonya's from Lazy Gal Quiltings free pieced letter tutorial.
Here is a close up of one of the crazy squares.....see the cute little lambs just peeking through the lace and ric rac!!
Another one featuring pretty little girls.....possible having a tea party surrounded by more lace and ric rac!!!
I finished it up by HAND QUILTING it. This was only the second time I had ever hand quilted anything! The first quilt I hand quilted was about 25 yrs. ago ( still not finished) was just straight lines around the squares. Go here if you want to see. This time I quilted little hearts....fans....cross-hatch across the Bonnie part and there are some 'squiggle' lines too. (click on picture to see close up)
OK....so I hope you enjoyed seeing this quilt.....again!!
