Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2012

Amy's Creative Side

My entry to the Bloggers Quilt Festival SPRING !!!! 


I am a member of JUST US QUILTERS group on facebook .
I wanted to make a few blocks for a monthly project :

well , It turned into more and more , and then I decided to make the whole quilt to help out the gal
that would be collecting the blocks and creating quilts to donate !  I think that is why it's special to
me ! I had the quilting done by a longarmer ; she quilted flowers in each block and she did an
awesome job !   Beth , the gal in charge of the project , was pleased with it . I sent it to her a few
weeks ago and I cut some strips and sent them to her for the rest of the quilts she will be making !
God bless her !!!!

Beth picked the block and requested purple be in it . I kept in contact with her to make sure it was
what she was thinking of .

I learned to NOT waste time trying to figure out placement and this and that  . I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out what would look best ; and found myself looking at blocks online that others had  made and went with the light and dark placements from what I liked !!!   I am not artistic !! I just sew !!!!! I'm not a
'designer' and look and stuff and do what looks good to ME !  I have been quilting for almost 4 years ; have been sewing for over 40 years or so ! ( wow ; I'm getting old ! ) . 

Thanks Amy and ALL THE SPONSORS for putting on this festival again !!!!!
