Blogger's Quilt Festival May 2011



I'm excited--there is a quilt show that you can see no matter where you are!  Amy's Creative Side is hosting the event.  If you have a quilt you want to share, please post it before May 20. 2011.
This quilt was made about five years ago for my youngest son.  I thought I had enough fabric at the time in my fabric stash to make this quilt and to my disbelief I was short just a few blocks.


 So what do you do when you get yourself into trouble?  Ask mom!  I took my blocks and showed her my problem.  Her solution was so simple.  She machine embroidered the blocks that I needed.  She even matched the colors in the print of the fabric.



I even ended up with a few extra blocks that I added to the backing making a reversible more retro type quilt.


Hope you are enjoying the Quilt Festival!


Thank you Amy for the

Mom sure came through with a great idea! It really adds something special to the quilt. I bet your son loves his quilt. I know the outdoorsmen in my family sure would.
