I may have mentioned before, but I LOVE quilts. I love all the patterns and colors. The first crafty thing I ever really made was actually my daughter's baby quilt (if you don't count school art projects and stuff like that). One day, about 9 months pregnant, I got the sewing machine my wise mother had given me out of a box, got out the stack of fat quarters I was given with the sewing machine and made my first quilt.
I quilted in little snails and the poem "Snip of snail and puppy dog tails, thats what little boys are made of."
Over the past three years since its completion this quilt has been very loved. It is funny to see it now, all faded. I love to see a well loved quilt.
Go check out all the BEAUTIFUL quilts at the festival and I will be sure to feature a few of my favorites when the festival it over.
