The Quilt Show Is Here!

Amy from Park City Girl is hosting another Blogger's Quilt Festival, lots of wonderful eye candy [do you remember how big the last one got?] This quilt is my entry.

I made this for a friend's daughter who was getting married. It was the biggest machine-embroidered quilt I had made to date. It seemed endless! It was also purple, which is really not my favorite color - quite the contrary - I have a hard time working with purple. But it was her favorite color so purple it had to be. Which is a good thing, because if it had been any other color, I would have been tempted to keep it, lol! The designs were all freebies I found on the net and I really loved them. I totally underestimated the time it would take and it didn't arrive until after the wedding, but they loved it.

Head on over to Amy's for the huge show - and keep checking back, it'll get bigger as time goes on! Don't forget to enter your own!
