Favorite quilt

It seems like everyone in my blogroll today is participating in an online quilt festival, so I thought maybe I would also go ahead and post my favorite quilt for show and tell.

So I think that my panda quilt is probably my favorite. I don't have a great story associated with or anything, but it's probably my most original quilt that I've designed and I like how it turned out.

My second favorite quilt is this one. I like the embroidery, and the satisfaction of finishing a difficult quilt (all those awkward diagonal seam intersections!).

ABCs and 123s baby block quilt with embroidered squares

Part of me wants to go pageant-style and nominate a couple other quilts for lesser titles, like "Favorite Use of Color" or "Most Visually Appealing" but I'll stop there...

Both quilts are very cute. I love them.

Kim said...

It is hard to choose just one, isn't it? Making a quilt is like birthing a baby, it's such a part of you. How can you possibly choose one over all the others? LOL

Anyway, absolutely LOVED your panda quilt! It is too cute for words. Your other quilt is gorgeous, too.

Heather said...

Your panda quilt is indeed a very special do able quilt - I just may be doing one of my own for a special littler girl. Thanks for the share.
