Bloggers Quilt Festival


From May 13- 20, join Amy for the Bloggers Quilt Festival.

Have you been to the virtual Bloggers Quilt Festival's before? Have you participated?? If you are visiting my blog for the first time - Welcome! It's always fun meeting new friends.

In the Spring of 2009, as a very new blogger, I took the plunge and joined Amy in the very first Bloggers Quilt Festival. This time I am sharing a quilt that I made for my daughter.


The pattern is Mothers and Daughters and was created by Tara Lynn Darr of Sew Unique Creations. My sister in love and I made this same pattern, and we were both thrilled to meet Tara Lynn personally this year in Paducah. She had an amazing booth located in the Kentucky Mall. I gave this quilt to my daughter for her birthday, and last year when we moved into our new home, my sister in love generously gave my daughter the matching twin.


I hope you will enjoy your walk through the Bloggers Quilt Festival. There are so many amazing quilts to see right from the comfort of your own home. Thank you Amy for all of your time and creativity in hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival. I am looking forward to viewing all of the beautiful quilts from around the world.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love for you to leave a comment. It's sort of like my guest book. And please stop by again.....soon :-)

Happy Quilting!

Jocelyn I love the quilt. It is "cool". The colors remind me of Neapolitan ice cream. :)

They're lovely! I like all the comments too! I hope more people leave them this round!

Jocelyn, as usual, I learn something new from you. The Festival is cool. I didn't see this quilt when I scrolled through them, though. Thanks again! It's beautiful, and since my earlier comment has gone away, I love the term of endearment "Sister In Love!" Makes me smile... BIG.
