Why Not Sew darling Mini quilt...

Okay, we found this cute quilt from Bloggers Quilt Festival. Seriously right? Okay, I just had to copy and paste her entire header! LOVE it so much! Megan asked to make her one for Christmas, I might try!  Erin from Why Not Sew is one crafty girly and be sure to head over to her blog for more inspiration! You may be stuck there for a while, but it will be well worth it!

Why Not Sew?

For my entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival I chose my Birdies Holding a Quilt quilt. I thought I should go with a bigger quilt but finally decided on this one. I've made quite a few of these and I think this is my quilting niche. I feel so happy and creative when I make them. For this quilt I used hexagons for the leaves which I really had fun with. All of my birds are on a line or branch. I thought for this I had to include my favorite thing in the quilt, a small quilt. I love the freedom of doing anything I want with these quilts. The free motion applique is like drawing. I really love that technique.


All of my quilts have special meaning to me. This one I keep in front of my sewing table. I think one of the reasons I love it so much is because of the pure joy I experienced making it. Absolutely no frustration. It's what I think quilting should be. FUN!!! I hope you like my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

I adore this little birdie quilt..I think creativity should definitely be more fun than frustration! Here's to doing the projects we want to do, not the ones we feel we should do..for whatever reason.
