Hi! It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival again over at Amy's Creative Side! This is the 2nd time I'm participating, and only my 3rd finished quilt ever! My first Blogger's Quilt Festival entry was my Max and Whisker's quilt that I made last spring for the hubby.
here, and she blogs here.
Name: I Spy Quilt
Fabrics: Charm pack from Amy Smart
Pattern: I Spy Quilt pattern from Amy Smart
Size: 39 inches square
I tried my first decorative machine stitch along the edge of the 1st border (the navy one).

There's a hand-embroidered patch on the back that with the blue floral as the border that tells the name of the baby and our names. I used a linen-y tan color for the alternate blocks. I quilted straight lines on all the blocks, and tried my FIRST EVER free-motion quilting on the floral border. It turned out better than I thought - between washing and the floral print, I covered a lot of sins! (although the stitching is quite visible on the back - don't look too close - yikes!)
