{ Blogger's Quilt Festival ~Fall 2015~ Small Quilt }

It's time for International Quilt Market which also means it's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted twice a year by the wonderful Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side. This is my second entry, and it goes into the Small Quilt category.

{ It's A Sailboat for this Noah }
Finished at 36x40
Pattern: Sailing Sailing by Glenna Hailey of Hollyhock Quilts
Fabric: Daysail by Bonnie & Camille
(with a teeny bit of Happy Go Lucky thrown in)
Quilted by: Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting

I really wanted to get some photos down at the beach, this being a sailboat
quilt and all. I found a new beach location at sunset one night. I took 
the quilt out but it was so windy and cold that I couldn't get a photo.

The next morning I tried again with not too much more luck. I'm sharing a couple
anyway. At least these photos show the quilting off.

This quilt is being gifted tomorrow to my sweet niece for her baby shower. 
I hope baby Noah sleeps peacefully under his quilt.

Yay, it's that time of the year again. All of us who aren't attending International Quilt Market have a place to gather and show off our current creations.  Thank you to Amy of Amy's Creative Side for sponsoring this online festival again.

This entry is in the large quilt category. It was made as a wedding gift for my niece. 

I enjoyed everything about making this quilt.... the pattern, the fabric made me happy every moment I sat down to work on it. I'd love to make another, and I just might. Thanks again to Amy for giving me a place to share this with you.
