Blogger's Quilt Festival

After finishing the big stitch quilting on this I was so pleased I could not wait another minute to finish it.  Being the scrap happy quilt that it is I thought a scrappy binding was perfect.  So I pulled out my bin with leftover binding in it and started sewing them together.  Some pieces were long others quite short but they all came together to make the perfect binding.
 I'm very pleased with the results if I do say so myself.
This quilt hold so many memories for me; in the fabric that created to where and how it was made.  I started it at a quilt retreat with dear friends I have known for a long time.  Worked on it in the chemo lab as I made new friends that inspire and uplift me.  And finished it up in the comfort of my home with my family.  
It brings me such joy I want to share it with others.  So it is my pick for Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Make sure you check it out.  Be prepared to be awed and wowed by all the lovely quilts.

  16. Oooh, scrappy spider webs. I LOVE them. I have been seeing the spider web quilts here and there, and it's really a great pattern. The scrap theme is a nice interpretation.

    I admit, I popped over because I was scrolling through the quilts and saw the name under yours said "Em." I did a double take because I don't usually see MY name in a link-up if it's not me. :-)

    Well done!
    Em
