Quilt Festival Spring 2009

Why Choose...



This is just a little thing but I love it!


It's a pattern I've created, I call it "Why Choose" because it's made from a pattern of diamonds and flowers and what girl really wants to decide between them when you can have both! It involves many things that I love in a very simple pattern.

It was quite an adventure figuring out the initial cutting but it went together so quickly and the flower is adorable!

It doesn't have a long story it just started as a sketch and an idea :) it came from my heart. I love pretty things and this one was a fun start for me! I have four little girls and if any of them were babies I'd probably have it in their crib! As it is it will probably end up a wall hanging for whoever can keep there room the cleanest! Hurray for incentive!

  15. I'm sitting in my home office with my Beloved Spouse and I started giggling at your explanation of your quilt's title. BSP asked why I was laughing and I explained, to which BSP said "Oh, do you know her? If not, it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship!"

    :)

    Your quilt is lovely too.

  21. I love that flower on it. It's something I have in mind to do to "rescue" a quilt I have made but don't love.
    Yours is just wonderful.
