Bloggers’ Quilt Festival :: Spring 2012

Hello! Amy at Amy's Creative Side is hosing another Blogger's Quilt Festival .  This is my second time join the Festival.  I love quilting and many crafty things!  I have a daughter who is 8! When she was 3,  I started quilting!  I don't buy her any birthday gifts instead I make a quilt a year for her! Sometimes, I am a little behind, but always lots thoughts when I make the quilt for her.

Before she turns 8, I asked what she had in mind for her quilt? She answered {rainbow}. I purchased the 1001 peeps bundle from Lizzy House in fat eighths for the entire quilt! The colors are just right for the quilt that I had in mind! The little houses are made with simple nine-patch blocks. I wrote up a little tutorial here if you are interest.

She is very happy with this quilt when it was washed and covered on her bed when she got home from school!! I never show her the whole quilt before it done.  She is pretty good at waiting her quilts to be done!

I plan on making 25 quilts for her then I will and hope I will start making quilts for my grandchildren. I love how quilts passing within families and lots stories that is being told and retell! I have lots stories about each quilt that I made for her! I love to tell you that every year she looks forward her birthday quilt.

Like every mother and daughter, we love each other dearly, but we also have conflicts together! It is growing experience for both of us! Each quilt is the record of the life that pass by us, but being capture within! This year, we talked much about our dream farm house and this is where the little house block inspiration came from!
