Quilt Festival

This is first post of my new blog. I love applique/fabric art, so I'd thought I'd start sharing. I figured joining in on this online quilt festival was the perfect way to start. So here's my current favorite and actually also my first applique quilt I've ever done.

It was a baby gift for a good childhood friend of mine. It definitely was an adventure. The poor kid was over six months old when I finally finished it, even though I started six months before he was born! I sure learned alot during the process though and I love how it turned out. I'm now nearing completion of his little cousins quilt and will post that when it's done.
