Virtual Quilt Festival

There's a Virtual Quilt Festival going on over at Amy's . Go check it out and join in on all of the fun;)

This is a picture of one of my favorite quilts that I have made and here's why...although it's not very big, only about 30" x 30", I made up and drew the design, hand appliqued the stars and hearts on it with a button hole stitch and then hand quilted it.

As imperfect as it is, probably the reason this one is so near and dear to my heart is that a very young grandson spent the night and he asked me if I could take it off of the wall and cover him up with it. We left this one on the wall and covered him up with a bigger quilt and he was OK with that because he could still see my Stars and Hearts Quilt;)

Enjoy the VQF:)

What a great story. Your little grandson sounds like a quilt lover. Very pretty quilt!

That is funny. He wanted the stars and hearts. Cute. Good for you to be able to satisfy him with something else. Love this virtual quilt show. It has been fun seeing everyone's projects. Yours is darling.
