Bloggers' Quilt Festival Spring 2012

I am very happy to once again be participating in Bloggers' Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side.  This time around I am sharing my "Sarah Ann" quilt (named after my daughter). 

This is not a new quilt.  I designed and made this quilt eight years ago choosing scraps in groups of three matching fabrics for each of the individual blocks, then randomly sewed the blocks together without worrying about colour placement.  That was not so easy for me  - I tend to plan and organized even my scrappiest quilts.

"Sarah Ann" is one of my favourites quilts and it hangs on the wall in our family room

another quilt quilted

Quilting is done and this quilt is ready for binding.

I quilted an all over design (a panto from Urban Elementz) which turned out really nice.

Next on the frame will be this quilt which is a pattern from a several years ago by The Vintage Spool.  My plan is to quilt a feather border, matching feather wreaths in the plain blocks and a stipple background.
