Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2012

This weekend is Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival!!  If you are visiting from Amy's site, welcome!!

This quilt is my most recent finish.  It is a fundraiser quilt for my daughter's ballet group.  This year they are performing a version of Peter Pan and there will be a cookie walk and raffles going on as a fundraiser. 

I primarily used a Sherbet Pips jelly roll for this quilt, but I added in a few other fabrics as well...mainly a darling Kokka ballet fabric.  I blogged a little about the fabric's earlier in this POST.  The long arm quilter used a pantograph of dragonflies on flowers...nice and loopy and fun.

I backed the quilt in the Scoot print also from Sherbet Pips and made a label from the Girl on Swing print....I sure hope this quilt makes some little ballerina happy!

Oh, and a shot from behind...just because I liked how the patchwork showed through!

Ok, now...go and check out the HUNDREDS of other quilts showcased on Amy's blog this weekend!  Better yet...why don't you add one to the linky party for a chance to win some great prizes!

Round Robin

In April I was working, well, procrastinating on my Round Robin for A Dozen Quilters bee.  Patty started with a cute panel and was hoping to finish with a cover for her table this summer.  I think I am the last to work on Patty's quilt and I think she has a great table quilt cover!

I bought the stars a year or so ago...Moda makes this stars bunting.  I had *just* enough to go around the quilt.

And my sister asked me to make a quilt for her Mother In Law's birthday.  Due by June 1st...yes, I have known since Christmas and I have been putting it off, well friends, let me show you why.


Enough said?

I am lucky in one respect though...the sweetest fabric friend swapped me Thimbleberry tumblers already cut for 5 inch charms.  At least I didn't have to come up with this fabric.  Thank you Des.
