Bloggers Quilt Festival

I love to quilt, even though i am not that great at it, i make loads of mistakes, something about it is very rewarding, i have given my quilts to family who love them,  and its a fab way to meet like minded people all over the wide web world! So now I am in the process of making a new quilt for my son who is now 18 and has outgrown his first one!
 He still loves it but, he needs something a bit more grown up! His first quilt was the beginning of my quilting journey, so this will be another special quilt as it will be one that will with him while beginning of his journey into life. He has found a place to stay about 30 mins from home, not too far away!  he can come home for dinner! So this quilt will remind him his family will be with him always, and keep him warm and snug, a blanket of love :)
Here it is in the book finished, in Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintottt, i have only started cutting it out, but its getting there, hopefully before he turns 30!
This colour range is just perfect, it has only just arrived, which is my excuse and im sticking to it!
Now i hope this is good enough for the quilt festival, i have been making other quilts, but this one is special.
Now im off to check out some of the creations there, hope you can join me! Thanks Amy!
