Blogger's Quilt Festival

Hi everyone, I am number 37 over Bloggers Quilt Festival: Throw Quilts. Please go take a look and Vote!

I am submitting this quilt into the "Throw Category" because when I originally made it in December this is what I said about it!

"Well last week I was working on a throw quilt for my new granddaughter to be born in January. I finished the top on Monday! I call it a throw quilt because I want it thrown on the floor/ground before the baby is put down on the floor or in the grass outside. Put it on the couch before you put the baby on it. A quilt you can take in the car and wash it when you get home. A barrier between the baby and the world. A baby wrapped in love! Yes, it is a little sappy!"

At the baby shower my daughter was expecting burp cloths! She knows I feel every new mom cannot live without them. She was mighty surprised to find Zoey's quilt in the bag! It made her cry seeing her daughter's name embroidered on it! It was one of those mother's "PRICELESS" moments! Made my heart sing!

I cried the moment "Zoey" was born and I heard her cry. She is so beautiful! Another "priceless" moment.

Look at those straight lines! I did that!
