Quilt Festival!





Amy over at ParkCityGirl is having a Bloggers Quilt Festival!  And I had to join!

My entry is the FIRST quilt I made.  And the ENTIRE thing is hand stitched.  It is my 16-month-old daughters clothes from her first year of life.  Mostly onesies and sleepers.  It means sooo much to me because I can look and it and recognize every square and at this right now I can tell you what item of clothing it used to be.  Not sure how well I'll do when she's 10!  But I'm super proud of it and I hope she'll treasure it as much as I do!

Thank you for stopping by!
