National (online) Quilt Festival; My Favorite Quilt story

Amy from Park City Girl has organized an online Quilt Festival. Join in the fun!

My Favorite Quilt


As many quilters would probably agree, choosing ONE quilt as a favorite is not easy to do. However, my favorite quilt was actually just posted (again) a couple of days ago; it would have to be Caitlyn's Flowers. This quilt was a quilt of many "Firsts." It was my first applique quilt (thank goodness the directions were easy!); it was my first FMQ (in the borders and around the flowers); it was my first "real" binding (where you hand-sew to the back); and it was the first quilt that was made for any of my girls.

Take a moment to join in the fun. Visit Amy's site and share your story :0)

A lot of us have chosen quilts that signified a "first" in our quilting journey. I've found the stories inspiring and the quilts lovely every time. Your little one looks quite happy on her special quilt! No wonder it's a favorite :-)
