Spring Quilt Festival

Amy is hosting another great party - The Spring Quilt Festival!

This quilt was made in top secret.  I completed it in November & had it under the tree this past Christmas.  It was the first time I actually followed a pattern.  After making a couple of quilts last year, my little guy asked me to make him one.  So it was fun to be able to make it without him knowing.  The look on his face Christmas morning was AWESOME!
  Amy - Thank you for doing this festival!  I can't wait to do some blog hopping!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Love your quilt. I'm actually doing one for a little 6 year old in Alaska that likes dinosaurs and this fabric is so fun. How you did it in secret is more than I could have done. I was always ready for bed when the kids were!
