Bloggers Quilt Festival

First isn't Amy great to host Blogger's Quilt Festival. A BIG THANKS to her!
Next I want to show off my son's quilt. Didn't he do a great job. He sewed all the scraps together, I helped him tie it and then I bound it for him. This quilt just screams 'N', he's the one with the neon green room. He loves color and I love him and his quilt.
Finally for my showing is this black and white quilt with red accent. It is my new design and will be available on my webpage soon. I call it Breathe. The motion in the blocks reminds me of the rythmic in and out of breathing. It also relaxes me simular to a deep breath. I had a lot of fun making this one. My hubby loves it. The deep contrast of the black and white really appeals to him.
Well I'm going to check out all the other wonderful quilts at Blogger's Quilt Fest. Hope you will do the same. I'll also be linking up at for Sew and Tell. After all it is Friday you know.

  1. You both did a great job! Doesn't sewing all that black and white make your eyes go buggy?!

  8. Friend, isn't "N's" quilt one you'd want to snuggle under? Oh I would. I think I'd take it with me everywhere. Like my blampey. :)

    Now Breathe... I'm delighted to see this. I think I recall this one but not entirely. A second look this one definitely deserves. You have such a talent for creating patterns. I enjoy the deep contrast of the black and white and reds myself!
