Bloggers Quilt Festival

Hi and welcome!!!  

This is my second time entering the Blogger's Quilt Festival at AmysCreativeSide.  I think it is a wonderful chance for quilters of all levels to participate in an online quilt show. Also it is alot of fun and so inspirational to check out everyone's entries.

My entry this time is a quilt I made in honor of my 7 year old grandson doing his first Walk for a cure walk. I am so very proud of him and didn't think just donating money was enough so I made this quilt for them to raffle off. I actually surprised myself on so many levels making this!  The free motion quilting in the center is something I never even dared to try much less with no pattern. If you have followed any of my postings you will know that I am new to machine quilting. I do it on my home machine and just started this past spring. I got this idea in my head for a design and how I managed to make it still totally amazes me!  LOL I did manage to do it though, and am pretty proud of it.

They were pleased with it and made alot more money on it than I thought possible so all went well.
