2016 Bloggers Quilt Festival

What a fun thing Amy Ellis has put together!  Seeing everybody's favorite creations all at one time will be a most enjoyable blog reading experience!  Click on this  Bloggers Quilt Festival link to see the beauty!  I am going to enter because even though I'm a newbie and hardly made anything at all this year, there are still some random drawings for all participants so I'm going for it.  (too bad there isn't a category for newbies).

You can see my original post about this quilt here.

My entry was inspired by a pattern I liked in the 2013 May/June issue of Fons & Porter.  It is a pattern designed by  Kimberly Jolly called Strawberry Skies. 

Here are the fabrics I chose to use . . . 



And here is my miniature version of this design . . .





I forgot to take a picture of the back but it is a super soft minky-like fabric that just begs to be petted.  The end of this story is I made this quilt for my niece who was supposed to be having a girl but she came out a Calvin!   

Hope you all enjoy the Quilt Festival!  Please be sure to vote for your favorites in each category.  There are some gorgeous and very creative designs!

Blessed quilting!
