Bloggers Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side | Bloggers' Quilt Festival


I am joining in again this year to Blogger's Quilt Festival that Amy holds over at her site Amy's Creative Side. It is always hard to choose a quilt but this year I decided to submit the crib quilt that I made my daughter Penelope which I named P's Quilt. I am always calling her P!!

Quilt in the sun


I started this quilt when I was 7 months along, crazy I know. I barely fit under my table to sew on my machine let alone sitting for a long period of time or getting up and down to iron each row of the log cabins.

I knew once I was having a girl I wanted aqua, pink, yellow and green. Those are the colors that always speak to me. Log Cabins were also something that I knew I would do since they are my favorite style of block.

After washing the quilt I wish I had quilted each square but since I was majorly pregnant I only quilted each of the log cabins. I do not love the quilting on the quilt but it is rare that I like my quilting. It always washes up differently each quilt so you never know what it will look like.

Here it is today in her room along with the new curtains my mom and I made her. This quilt has been well used and washed. This is still one of my favorite quilts. The colors along with the dots are my favorite as I have mentioned a bunch already.Hopefully Penelope will love it for years and years. Isn't that what we always hope for when we make someone a quilt?
