Quilt Festival

I don't have a modern quilt, an unusual quilt, an original quilt or a quilt that requires immense talent to share with you unfortunately!! I haven't made one of those yet...

What I have is a special quilt, made with love. The first quilt I made, using lots of wonderful advice from family, reading and exploring blogs and tutorials.
I had an urge to quilt, to create, to make something pretty and practical. It was an easy pattern and I loved every minute of making it.


I gave it to my Nan, those of you who follow might have gathered how important she is to me, I wanted to give her a gift and share what I was making. She loves seeing what I'm working on and is so kind and encouraging!

Here is the quilt at her house, on proud display :)


Don't you just love that crazy vintage car lampshade?! :)

I'm linking up to the Bloggers' Quilt Festival, come and join in the fun!

  4. The first quilt always has special meaning and it's even more meaningful that you gave it to someone that you love. It's a fun thing to share.

  16. What a lovely quilt. Sometimes simple is really the most effective. I no longer have my beloved Granny, she died in 1976 aged 100, but she was a sewer, and would have loved anything I made. Treasure her, and I love your quilt!
