Bloggers' Quilt Festival: Blue Boxes

So, I'm getting this one in just under the wire. Good thing my sister called me to hassle me about not having anything new up on my blog or I would have missed the Bloggers' Quilt Festival entirely.

This quilt is one I made for a friend's baby shower. She's set to have their first baby on Monday and I'm very excited for her! I tried really really hard not to buy anything for this quilt...and almost succeeded. My cute sister sent me the fabric for the back and I hit my stash for the fabrics in the top. The only thing I had to buy was the binding. The binding fabric looked really cool when it was laid out flat--kind of like crinkly paper.

So here is the front:

And the back:

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you've all enjoyed the Festival!

  5. I love it when you can make a quilt without spending a lot of money and use up some of the fabric on hand. This is such a sweet quilt. I'm excited to be a new follower of yours!

  7. Inventory reduction quilts are sometimes the best! Great job, I know that baby and mommy will feel the love!
