First things first...

A dear friend's first grandbaby...we've known and loved the Mommy since she was 5 years old :)

That's right, the Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side....such an amazing event, and twice a year! I didn't think I would have a quilt to share, but here I am! Yay!!!
Baby Ansley's quilt measures 45" x 45", and is made from a variety of "vintage" 80's and 90's fabrics.
I used the Fat Quarter Shop's "Jelly Roll Jam" quilt pattern, and added some borders to help brighten up those old fabrics!
And last but not least, "Why I need a new Baby Lock sewing machine!":
I think if you look closely at the machine quilting you will see that a wonderful new Baby Lock would help immensely in improving my skill set! Before I even knew there was a chance to win one, I kept thinking as I struggled with it, that It would sure be nice to have a few of those "modern" features, like needle down, and adjustable needle placement etc.
And ever since I learned of this fun giveaway opportunity, this song has been running through my head, with an obvious minor lyric adjustment...the Supremes...Baby "Lock"...
Enjoy the Quilt Festival! I know I certainly am! Thanks SO much to Amy and all of the sponsors and everyone who participates to make this such an exciting event!!!
I just LOVE it!!!!
