Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival organized by Amy from Amy's Creative Side, from May 21st to the 25th, 2010. The quilt I have chosen is designed by Sharon Wilkinson and is called Flower Power.

My Girlfriend Lillian asked me to make this for her friend getting married in London.


It has raw edge applique flowers with a checkerboard border and a plain border.
I have machine quilted feathers in the plain border and quilted line dancing
in the checkerboard with an all over meandering in the body of the quilt.


Lillian choose the fabrics, and I really love the bright colours set against the white,
I really enjoyed machine quilting this quilt and I hope that Lillian's friend
enjoys her Wedding Present.

Leaving the flowers unquilted will just make such a fun contrast when the quilt is washed and those edges start to fray. Beautiful job on the quilting. Thank you for sharing this quilt's story :)

What a lovely quilt! So bright and cheery!

..I am off today from work, so will hopefully get to some others on the quilt fest. I have some drawing orders to work on and of course, cleaning house... Now that our children are grown and my hubby and I are empty nesters, I can't be a "stay at home mom", but I would love to be a stay at home wife :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
If you have a moment to come over, please let me know by leaving a comment at my post. It was fun meeting you!
