Starry-Eyed Quilt: Blogger's Quilt Festival

Every year Amy hosts this great event called the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  If you haven't heard of it, you REALLY need to check it out!  Soooooooooo many inspirational quilts and new bloggers to discover!  This year I'm entering two quilts, one is my "Starry-Eyed Quilt" in the Throw Quilt category (here's the other one):



I recently blogged about this one and the method I used to make it.  Every print is from designer Anna Maria Horner.  Some new, some old, some VERY old.  Everyone loved and precious to me!

I got it all quilted up and ready to ship to its new home---and, yes, that means I'm not keeping it!  It's a shocker I know, but I do have, uh, several other Anna Maria Horner quilts to keep me warm! 


I used my favorite Innocent Crush print for the backing on this one and I couldn't be happier with the results, even though it was a case of using what I had on hand!  It's ones of the BEST feelings to find enough yardage for backing in my stash!

Before it was quilted this quilt made a nice curtain in my living room!  My husband thought it was a bit too much to stay there permanently.  Oh well! 

Look how pretty it looked with the light coming through!  

Hope you all enjoy the Festival and blog hopping!  Psssst!  Vote for me! :)
