Bloggers Quilt Festival

Wahoo time to go drool on some eye candy. Thanks Amy sew much for hosting this and wow thanks to those sponsors. For new ones out there Follow the link and you will find many many different quilt shows via the net. There are several different categories and each one has its' own link. And you can vote for your favorite. So after spending the day looking at all the lovely quilts on display I decided that I would join in. But what category. Well since we can enter two I picked out two that mean oh sew much to me, and they each could go in a couple categories, so I flipped a coin and my first entry is Spring Blooms and is entered into the
professionally quilted category.
This Triple Irish Chain was quilted by me, I own a Gammill Classic hand guided no stitch regulator. I sometimes feel so old school. lol. This quilt was a guild raffle quilt that I won!. How lucky can that be! I am so glad I bought the tickets. That is one thing about quilting for others, sometimes we put so much of ourselves in the quilts that it is sew sew hard to give them back never to be seen again.
The flowers and leaves were hand appliqued.

Something different in this Irish chain is the continuous green squares in the background pieces. I don't think I have ever seen a chain quite like this one. Oh once again I am so glad I bought those tickets!
Notice how all the leaves are just set at random! I really think it helps with the scappiness. Oh OH it could have went into 3 categories. Should I go back and flip again. Nope leave it where it is. I think I actually have all the links right. lol so I better just leave well enough alone.

Be sure to check out all the other categories here.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. I hope you enjoy the eye candy out there and be sure to pick your favorite and vote for it.
