Bloggers Quilt Festival

Bloggers Quilt Festival entry. I am entering this in the festival and have linked this post back so that all can go and see the amazing quilts entered.


This is an octagon quilt that I made for a friend at work. She just moved into a new home and I wanted to make her a house warming gift. It was made with an oriental print of Jars. I just loved this fabric and hated to cut it up but it turned out nicely. I love this pattern because it showcases a piece of fabric really well. I have made several quilts using it.

  3. Lovely quilt and how wonderful to have a friend for a quilter! :o) I am sure this special quilt will be well-enjoyed :o)

    ..I am off today from work, so will hopefully get to some others on the quilt fest. I have some drawing orders to work on and of course, cleaning house... Now that our children are grown and my hubby and I are empty nesters, I can't be a "stay at home mom", but I would love to be a stay at home wife :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!
