Blogger's Quilt Festival: Out of hiding...

I'm coming out of blogger hiding again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Sad that it takes the remote chance of willing a prize to get me to post, huh?.  But in my defense, I have been busy since the last festival...being pregnant, having the flu while pregnant, having a ruptured eardrum, recovering, having a baby, nursing said baby...I also quilted like CRAZY to get some UFOs done and sent to my amazing sister to quilt on her long-arm.  Now I just need to get them bound and photographed so I can show them off properly.

Between all the winter illness and the arrival of our new little cutie (whom I am now feeding while typing this one-handed), I got a lovely little package in the mail...a bunch of my quilts, beautifully quilted and ready to be bound.  I made this quilt to test a pattern for my sister.  In return, she agreed to quilt it for me (she did all the others out of pure sisterly love and awesomeness).  I backed this quilt with minky and was THRILLED with how it turned out.  I gave it to one of my sisters-in-law as a baby present but it was super hard not to keep it for myself!

And there you have it.  I tried really hard to get good photos of the quilting but, alas, my photography skills and camera were not up to the challenge.

Enjoy the festival!
