Bloggers Quilt Festival!

Now this is cool. An online quilt show! My entry is shown below. I will blog more about this quilt in the future but it was my first quilt ever and the project that got me hooked on all this fabulous fabric fun. When I needed new bedding for my daughters "big girl" bed and couldn't find anthing I decided to take her old crib bedding and create a quilt. With the help of my two grandmothers this is the result. I had it quilted by a wonderful longarm quilter in the Minneapolis area, Sara Peterson. If you have some time you should check out all of the amazing entrys. Wow. Thanks Park City Girl! Great idea...

I really like that soft green you used. I like those star blocks too.

Nice idea to recycle that nursery bedding - I'm always a sucker for sawtooth stars and especially when they're just sprinkled here and there like you have - lovely!
