Online Quilt Festival

I had a blast during last year's Quilt Festival hosted by the lovely Amy.

So I'm entering again this year.

I wanted to show a quilt I completed in 2008.
It was my first quilt using lots of scraps from my stash.


I think that's what is so wonderful about patchwork.
You make do with what you have.


This is the pieced back.


And now with my lovely assistant, Ella


Hope you like it. We do!!!

Enjoy visiting all the other quilts in the festival.

Andi :-)

PS Have you enetered my giveaway yet?
