Bloggers quilt festival entry no. 1

Hi all,

I have been admiring all the quilts that are already participating in the bloggers quilt festival and felt inspired to enter a couple of my latest finishes. If you are a follower of my blog you have probably already seen these quilts so I hope you don't mind seeing them again :-)

I am entering my American Beauty in the large quilts category. She is a huge king size quilt and was quite hard to photograph. As you can see my clothes line would not go high enough!

I made this as a Marti Michell block of the month in a monthly class at my local patchwork shop. It was a slow burn project for me, never rushed, not in a hurry to finish. I just enjoyed the ride that lasted about 2 years!

She now lives on my bed and hangs over the sides a lot which eliminates any quilt tug of wars during the night! ;-)

Thanks for visiting me!

Bye for now, Jess
