Online Quilt Festival

Thanks for stopping by! I have been quilting for about 9 years but stopped for awhile after I had my two boys. The past few years I have become obssessed with quilting and spend my spare time quilting, thinking about quilting, looking at blogs, etc.

I thought I would share this quilt with you. It is an original design that I made for my sister-in-law after she lost her twins at 5 months along. It is called Flowers of Hope. It was a very painful time for our family and the quilt was thearaputic for me when making it. My brother and his wife are amazing people who have been through alot and have shown so much love and respect for each other along the way. So inspiring!








It was made with Frolic (I made 3 other quilts from this line). I tried applique with the flowers so they got a ragged edge once washed. For the quilting I attempted to do loops - so not my favorite technique but once washed it looked alot much better.

Thanks for visiting and remember to stop by and see the rest of the quilts in the festival http://amyscreativeside.com/2011/05/13/bloggers-quilt-festival-spring-2011/
