Blogger's Quilt Festival 2010

Well its the Blogger's Quilt Festival again. Yeah!!! What a great idea this is. Thanks Amy for all your hard work.

My entry is a quilt from my pre-blogging days. I think I finished this around my son's 2nd birthday which would be late September 2007 (yep mind is gone to the dogs and I can't remember exactly when it was finished). This is probably one of my most favourite quilts I have ever made.

The pattern was from an Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine and the designer was Lynelle Slade. The original version was definitely not eye-spy. I am very glad I saw the potential in the pattern. I love how it turned out. I spent a lot of time fussy cutting but it came together very quickly. It was machine quilted in an allover star pattern by my local long arm quilter.

My son has spent many hours playing eye-spy, counting and shape spotting with his quilt.

The backing is a blue checked gingham. I love gingham backs. The binding fabric was selected by my son. Not sure what I would have done if he had picked something I didn't like.

Now don't forget to check out all the other wonderful entries in the festival. Please make sure you are sufficiently hydrated before commencing the tour. Now just click here to be on your way.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
