|Today begins the Spring 2012 Bloggers Quilt Festival and I am attempting to join in. The link is amyscreativeside.com/bloggersquiltfestival This quilt pattern appealed to me for a number of reasons. First of all, I love Americana. I also love vintage looking calicos and I always prefer white backgrounds on my quilts for some reason.
|The color combinations were also perfect for my living room where I hang seasonal quilts all year round. This quilt will cover Memorial Day, 4th of July and probably August as well!
|The pattern also makes a cute pillow!

|I can't resist a cherry motif on just about anything. They are so persistently cheerful! I do find myself with quite a stash of cherry fabric!
|I added a border after appliqueing these dish towels. It's so quick and easy and gives me handwork to do in front of the TV.
|I just finished this apron. I'm actually making two: one lined with a small cherry fabric and one lined with red and white dots. These I will probably sell at the "Olive Kat" or on Etsy.
|I had fun with this applique, trying to match it to the design on the fabric.
|We imposed on Margy to display her "still in progress" Cathedral Window quilt. It is so amazing. We all agreed that using each color in a diamond pattern really enhances the quilt.
|These are our three measly ornaments. We will add them to next months group for exchanging.
