Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2011

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.

Please Stop by Amy's and check out all of the other entries. Take care :)
