Hooray, it's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! Amy does such a great job organizing this event and it is so much fun to see everyone's quilts! I hope to see every single one!
I just finished this quilt last night for my nephew's birthday (party is tomorrow!!). When Penny suggested a quilt along using the Quilt As You Go method, I joined in right away! I had over 6 months to make 2 of these quilts for my nephews...it was fun to use up some scraps, and I love the heavily quilted front of the quilt. I let my nephews choose some fabric they liked for the backings...although they did not know it was to become part of the quilts I have made them!
This block with the flying big is one of my favorites!
I didn't realize until sandwiching the quilt that my backing fabric was actually a bit too short in width...but then, I figured, using the selvage was an acceptable method now a days, so I went with it...and I am glad I did! It is my favorite part of the backing!
Time to wrap this quilt up for some gift giving time tomorrow!
So, now that you have heard the story behind my latest quilt, head over to Amy's blog and see/read the story of hundreds of others!!
