Blogger’s Quilt Festival

Amy over at Amy’s Creative Side is hosting the third Blogger’s Quilt Festival.   Over 650 people have entered their quilts this week.  There are so many amazing and talented people in blogland.

Here is my very last minute entry:

This was a quilt for a coworker expecting her first baby, a son, in March.  It was made during round 5 of the Old Red Barn Co quilt along on flickr led by Dana.  It was my first experience with pinwheels and I loved it.  The quilt was made with an animal alphabet charm pack and white solid.    The backing was my favorite part of the quilt!

All quilted, bound and washed just prior to running out the door to the shower!

Thanks for visiting!
