Bloggers' Quilt Festival

I am so excited to participate in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side for the first time!

Amy's Creative Side

I've been waiting eagerly to participate since the Festival last fall.  For those of you who don't know, Amy hosts the Bloggers' Quilt Festival each year during fall and spring quilt market.  It is so much fun to see all of the quilts!

And now for my quilt...

I call this quilt "Verna's Flower Garden."  The fabric is Verna by Kate Spain.  I pieced the top last summer as a way to experiment with a jelly roll.  Then I folded it up and set it aside for months.  Then, I realized that it would be perfect for a special friend of mine going through chemo.  All of the colors and flowers really reminded me of her, so I pulled it out and finished it up for her birthday.

I love the colors in this quilt.  It is so bright and cheerful.  It reminds me of a sunny spring day!
