Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

This is my entry to the Blogger's Quilt Festival :: Spring 2011

 


I entered the Festival last Fall and decided to go ahead enter again. 

This quilt is special because it is the very first quilt I quilted on my longarm machine.  The friend I bought it from let me put on this quilt so I could try out the machine.  I had no idea what I was doing, or what I was getting myself into for that matter! 



I was ambitious and stitched a little something in each center square.  My skills have definitely improved in the 2 years I've had my machine.  I sure hope so because my quilting looks kinda terrible here! 

Here is some of my my latest quilting.  Free-motion leaves.  This was Quilted Quilt #19 for the year.  The goal is to quilt 1 quilt per week this year.  Getting pretty close to half-way through!
