So I normally don't post on the weekends, but I found this fabulous online "Bloggers Quilt Festival" and wanted to join in :) There are so many fabulously talented quilters out there! Wow!
I haven't made that many quilts (about 4, I think) but have definitely been eyeing quilting as a new project. Below is a quilt that has a lot of sentimental value and has had lots of use and love :) I started making it shortly after I met my (now) husband, about 7 years ago. I was making it for his birthday even though I barely knew him :) I knew there was something special about him and wanted to make this for him. It's a simple crazy quilt, with fun buttons sewn on. I got two buttons that have "Joy" on them and sewed them on the top and bottom part of the quilt where it would always fall over the heart of whoever was using it. Thus, "Joy in my heart" :). This quilt is now a family favorite for me, my husband, our precious 2 year old son and our miniature schnauzer, Mr. Biz.
