Almost missed getting my entry in for the Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2010 thanks to a flying visit from DD and DGD! We had a lovely long weekend with them filled with glorious sunshine, but as usual the house is VERY empty now that they've returned to the UK.
I think this time I have to choose the Vintage New York Beauties quilt I made a little while ago from Valori Wells book 'Radiant New York Beauties' .
Why this one - well, because it was a number of 'firsts' for me!
My first (and probably last) paper pieced quilt.
My first attempt at applique using the freezer paper method - something I will try again as I did enjoy it
My first attempt at free motion quilting that wasn't stippling - came out not too bad in the end luckily
So, all in all, even though it took me ages to finish and at times drove me almost mental - it is a quilt that I am proud of now .
