I almost missed this year's Bloggers' Quilt Festival for Spring 2011. It started yesterday May 13th. Life is getting really hectic these days. I never thought anything of it until a dear colleague who reads my blog asked me one day how I manage to do so much while also working full time. She said I'm so prolific with what I do! I'm sure that was a compliment. I don't know how to live any other way. I seem to have a lot on the go at any one time. I love it!
The quilt I'm entering in BQF today is this small friendship quilt I made two of them, one for myself and one for my friend Linda (no blog) who gave me the heart fabric for the border. To me the heart fabric by itself was overpowering, but setting it around a redwork embroidery toned it down a bit. I love it much better now.
It's only 36" x 36" square. I hand embroidered and quilted it using a bow pattern. It's not a brand new quilt, but I haven't blogged it here before so I thought I would share it in this year's Bloggers' Quilt Festival. Thanks again Amy for hosting this wonderful event. I'm looking forward to visiting all the blogs and viewing all the wonderful quilts.
