Bloggers' Quilt Festival!

Amy's Creative Side
If you're looking for some quilt eye-candy, go over to the Bloggers' Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side.  There is some absolutely AMAZING quilting going on over there.  It might become quite a time suck going through the huge number of links, but it's well worth the time for some great inspiration.

Now, to my entry... After kicking around some ideas, I decided to submit my Punctuation quilt:



This is my absolute favorite quilt I've made to date, because of all the crisp, bright colors.  It was also the first quilt where I felt my piecing technique had improved immensely.  The quilting process was also very gratifying, as I was able to use both straight-line and free-motion quilting in different sections of the quilt.  Finally, it just happened to be my 100th post!   For full details about the quilt, you can go here.

The lovely thing is that my youngest son, now 5 1/2, uses it every night!  What better reward than that?
