Park City Girl is holding a blogging quilt festival. I can participate in a quilt festival if I've only created one quilt, right? Well, I really only did the quilt top. The real quilter ladies did the rest. Here's the story:
After having 3 boys, I found out number 4 was a girl. I immediately went shopping. Then I began planning the nursery. I was all set to do bold, bright colors. One day, I happened upon a quilting magazine (I can't remember which one, sorry!) which had the perfect vintage-style nursery bedding. Love at first sight. The instructions said it was "easy", so I dove right in. Never mind that I'd never quilted before. This looked fun! My sister came to visit one weekend, and she inspired me to "close your eyes and sew!" OK, not literally, but the point was, stop thinking so much, and SEW!!! I finished the quilt top, and then my mother-in-law's sister offered to do the quilting and binding. ANGEL!
The quilt now hangs above my daughter's big-girl bed. I still love it.
The quilt hanger is from Village Quilt Shop. I love that place.
