Quilt Show :: Bloggers' Quilt Festival :: Spring 2012

May 18 2012,

This is my fourth time entering Amy's Creative Side Bloggers' Quilt Festival.

Below are a pair of wall hangings that I made in the end of February. They both measure approximately 41" x 41". These two are hand appliqued and hand quilted.

These two quilts hang side by side in the living room. And when people come into the house, they would always make a double take of it.

"It's All About You"

"It's All About Me"

Thanks for visiting.
