My quilt entry is not anything new, in fact, you're probably sick of seeing it...LOL! However, it is special to me because it has sort of come to personify the QFB project in my heart. While it was still just a quilt top, it was photographed for the write up in the Winnipeg Free Press. It was also my first attempt at pinwheels, which are so much fun by the way.
It isn't a technical quilt, but none of mine are. It isn't a large quilt, it didn't take me much time, the quilting is just straight lines, following the seams. So, really, it would never "win" anything in a quilt show, but it has won a large place in my heart. I hope that it will find it's home with a very special baby that will love it and cherish it, and someday read this post and know how special it has become to me.
I am so looking forward to spending some time this long weekend to look at all the beautiful entries, and read the stories of what makes them special to their creator. There are always so many, it takes forever, but it is SO worth it. So, if you've never participated in Amy's Quilt Festival, go on over there and check it out. It is so much fun!
ETA: Please don't think I am knocking my quilts, my quilting, or myself...I don't quilt for other people...I quilt for myself, and try hard not to compare myself to others. In fact, I love simple. I think that simple doesn't mean easy, it doesn't mean plain. Simple is beautiful and I think this quilt is beautiful, for lots of reasons. In the 10 years since I made my very first quilt, I have never done elaborate, or fancy, it's just not my style...that's all.
