Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Flora Market Baby Quilt

I am so excited to be a part of the Blogger's Quilt Festival! Thanks Amy!

I made my first official quilt 20 years ago, then made a king size quilt that I HAND quilted! I think that one did me in and I hadn't made a quilt-quilt again since. :) I continued sewing and actually started my own baby goods business,(not to mention getting married and having babies!) then an Ebay fabric business and just never made the time to quilt. 
Discovering the creative blogging world changed all that. I actually "took up" quilting again when I found Old Red Barn's quilt along. I loved the great tutorial and the community I found. Well I caught the bug again, big time! I can't stop thinking in quilt. I have about 7 different quilt ideas swimming around in my head at any given time. I needed a good excuse to make one. My beautiful newborn niece, Maris was the perfect muse.
I used beautiful scraps from some of my favorite fabric lines and fused them together. They are:
Farmer's Market by Sandi Henderson
Flora & Fauna from Patty Young
Soiree from Lila Tueller
Summer Soiree from Paula Prass
Pop Garden from Heather Bailey
The pattern is Vintage Baby by Kati Cupcake (minus the ruffles).
I love how they all blended together so well. I'm just so pleased with the way it turned out and so happy to be a part of the quilting community again!

Very pretty fabrics- I really like Lila Tueller's fabrics - Soiree. She is a very nice lady who has a great blog too.
So glad you found the quilt bug again- it is a wonderful past time/addiction. I have quilted seriously since 1996 and made wonderful connections with quilters from around the globe.
Happy quilting,
Regards from a Western Canadian quilter,
