Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  Once again it's time for Amy's blogger's quilt festival.  Twice a year Amy invites quilters all over the world to visit her blog and share one of their quilts with anyone who wants to enjoy the talents of all the other creative quilters.  Thank you, Amy, for all the hard work you put into this each time. Click over to see them all and read their stories.  http://amyscreativeside.com/2012/10/26/bloggers-quilt-festival-fall-2012/
This season I am sharing my line art baby quilt.  This is the third quilt I have made from the same jelly roll.  Each quilt used the same pattern just in different dimensions.  The first one was lap size, the second one was a doll quilt.  http://sewingsandy.blogspot.com/2011/04/julianne-baby-quilt.html
I really had no baby in mind when I made it, but I think it is the perfect quilt to have stashed away for a someday baby.  The fabric was a Mary Engelbreit jelly roll and some kona white.  It is approximately 29" x 36".  I hand quilted it and finished the edges with rickrack under the binding.  I would place this quilt in the baby quilt category and the hand quilted category.

Darling, so cute. Great colors, love the design. The pick stitch and rick rack add great interest.

Ive been seeing this gorgeous strip quilts round the place and have kept the idea in the back of my head for a future quilt.

Seeing how lovely your quilt is may have just pushed the idea firmly into my "must make this soon" queue!

I'm pretty sure I said this before, but in case I didn't, this quilt is fantastic! I'd forgotten that you hand-quilted it - that makes it extra-special! And the rick-rack...fabulous addition! :)
