This will be my first entry ever in the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy@Amycreativeside. I must admit deciding what quilts to enter was difficult. So the decision was made to add my most recent quilt finish for entry one and my all time most loved quilt for entry 2.
My quilt "Sweet Sixteen" was the last quilt to be quilted. However I designed and made it well over a year ago. The inspiration for this quilt came from the old fashion appliqued crossing tulips design.
The plan was for it to hang in my Studio for Valentines Day. But the overall tradition feel of the quilt allows it to be displayed all year long. Okay maybe it's just me and my love for the quilt...HAHA!
One of my favorite design elements of the quilt is the fussy cut hearts in the center of the stars and at the top of the hearts.
The reason why I waited so long before quilting it was because I simply didn't know what to quilt. Then one day it became very clear that I needed to keep the heart motif going in the quilting. It was well worth the wait.
Thanks for stopping by my little spot in Podunk!
