BLOGGERS QUILT FESTIVAL

I know I have been a very irregular blogger lately but I always try to have an entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.

Amy's Creative Side

I have made a few quilts this year so far but I am going to blog one that I made late last year for a lovely and very talented quilter in a swap.  I was terrified when I found out my swap partner as she is AMAZING at both piecing and quilting but I settled on an idea, a theme, some fabric and went for it.

I used the basic pattern from Ricky Timms Convergance quilts book and it was so much fun.
My Theme was snow as every year Emma and her famliy take trips to the Snowy Mountains and I love to look at the photo's.  I machine embroidered some snowflakes and did a Free Motion swirly all over quilting.
On the back was a butterfly fabric that I used in honour of her son who loves having his face painted with butterflies.

Fun, and I love the snowflakes. My first quilt was a Ricky Tims convergence quilt, so this really brings back memories.

This quilt looks wonderful. The fabrics work so well and I love the snowflakes you embroidered on it. It must have been hard giving it away!
