Amy's Quilt Bloggers' Festival

Once again Amy at is having her quilters blog fest.  She does this in the spring and fall every year and it is sew much fun to see all the beautiful quilts and meet new blogging friends.
The quilt I'm showing this year is my first attempt with perle cotton.  I love the look of it, but am not quite sure I have the hang of it.  It is kind of difficult to pull through the layers.  The pattern I used was adapted from one I saw using layer cakes.  This one was made using charm squares I got at a steal from Connecting Threads and some Kona cotton.  It turned out fresh and springy and although I am in love with it, I decided my sister should have it for her new house.  The great thing is, she loves it, too!

Allie is so cute.   As soon as I pick up the camera she says, "cheese!"  Love this sweet baby girl!  Grandkids are the best.
