Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2010

I am so excited to submit Heidi's Quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! This has truly been a labor of love for me. My dear friend, Katie asked me to make a quilt for her beautiful daughter, Heidi's special birthday. Heidi picked the basic design and colors and then I went with it!
It is a twin size bed quilt made with in a Disappearing Nine Patch with two strip borders, a patchwork border and a ric rac trim.
 The main fabric line is Pillow & Maxfield's Whimsy by Michael Miller. The brown & white polka dot is Michael Miller's Dumb Dot. There is also some Ta Dot by MM, Paula Prass' Flights of Fancy, and a Jennifer Pagianelli print.
 I put a beautiful aqua minky on the back so it would be warm and cuddly. This is the first time I had a quilt long-arm quilted. Grammie Roylane did a beautiful job and the minky quilted wonderfully!

 I also made a matching sham and four throw pillows. This was such a challenging but rewarding project and I know that it will be loved. XO Katie!
