Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Star Surround Cot Quilt

Well this is a first for me, I'm entering one of my quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. I decided to enter my Star Surround Cot Quilt in the Home Machine Quilted Category.

The blocks for this quilt were made as part of a quiltalong at Happy Quilting last year and quilted in time for my niece's baby's arrival in February this year.

 I had a great time machine quilting this one as usually I do much larger quilts on my little old Janome so a cot quilt was a breeze!


Its not perfect but I'm really happy with the way it turned out overall.

Turned out it fit in perfectly with the nursery colour scheme! Don't you love what my niece did with the butterflies?!

Nominations are open until 23rd May and voting is open between 24th May and 29th May (if you want to nominate my quilt just add the link to this blogpost here).  Why not have a look at the different categories and enter one of your own quilts?
