Bloggers Quilt Festival
I'm sure you've heard about the spring bloggers quilt festival hosted by Amy from here. She's such a dear and does this twice a year. Last year at this time I didn't have a blog and couldn't show anything and last fall I posted a quilt I made in the spring. This time though I want to show you something really near and dear to my heart. I made it last year after it was in my head for months and once I showed it on flickr, it was wonderfully accepted and many suggested that I publish a pattern. Now, I really had no intention of ever doing that when I first made it, but then a lady I know through another sewing forum commissioned me to make one for her and because of that, I wrote down all the measurements and wa-la.......the beginning of a pattern. Who would have guessed at my age that would happen? Actually, God was looking out for me because my husband lost his job right around that time and the little $$ that I make from this has helped out already. I guess you just never know what life has in store for you, right?
