Spring Quilt festival entry....

Hi all, welcome to Quiltstory. It is Heather and Megan from FRESH POPPY DESIGN, Here is my entry for PARK CITY GIRL'S blogger quilt festival...



This quilt is for first and only baby boy. I have four daughters, and finally got a sweet little man. I made this one for him. He has been spoiled. I think he will end up with five baby quilts if my sister ever gets her butt in gear and finishes hers for him.

It is a cute pattern made by Heather of Anka's treasures.

Here it is in the process, laying it out and stitching it together. It was a really fun quilt to make, and pretty quick to put together...

I hope you like Weston's quilt. He does :)  Now on to some fun stuff...  Quiltstory is a blog where everyone can submit and share stories about their favorite quilts.  Look around our site a little we hope you like what you see and come back often.   We are also having a giveaway...

Pick any five of these patterns...


Giveaway 2 is a cute little stack of 5 blue, grey and brown fat quarters. All wrapped in a bow!


You all know the drill. Enter a comment and you have one entry. If you become a follower, you have 3 entries, and if you submit a quilt and little story, you get 5 more entries. Just let us know in your comment if you became a follower, and if you would like us to contact you about submitting your quilt in the next couple of months.

Very cute quilt! Baby quilts are my absolute favorite thing to make. I was blessed with three precious girls and told "no more babies" by my doctor so we are hoping to adopt a baby boy in the future. Until then I will live vicariously through others that get to "spoil" their boys :D

I would also like to share a quilt story. This is about the quilt I am currently working on - its up to the border stage. This quilt was started over 5 years ago and it's called Cabin Cosy, a log cabin block with a bear paw inthe corner. I love log cabin blocks but have decided I do not like bear paws, these were so time consuming and I was not happy with the way they turned out that I stuck them in a cupbarod for 5 years. They came out last year and I added the log cabins, but then they went back in the cupbard. Well I pulled it out a couple of weeks ago and have sewn them together so all that I need to do it to see the borders on (today hopefuly) and book myself in to quilt it and it will be done. And can I say that now its together I just love it.

Thaks for letting me share my quilt story with you and your readers.

I wanted to reply to your sweet comment (I am not sure which of you left a comment :o), but in my email, it shows up as reply to "norply-comment@blogger.com", When I first started blogging, i would reply back, but realized that those comments get "lost in space". When I tried to contact you with the Contact button, my server wouldn't allow it. Anywhoo...so here I am on one of your past posts, just to say thank you again for your sweet, sweet comment :o)

Please come back any time! I am happy you enjoy the drawings that I do, I try to share past orders with each post.

Blessings & Aloha!
