Quilt Festival!

When it came time to pick a quilt for the Blogger Quilt Festival, I immediately thought of the quilts I've made that I would want to have.  And they were girly.  'Cause I'm a girl.  But I really do love this quilt!  It's so colorful and happy and cheerfully modern.



It was made for my cousin's baby boy, although it could totally be gender neutral.


Despite recent post's comment about breaking quilting rules and not using patterns, I actually used a pattern.  Kind of.  Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts fame gave the super easy instructions for this quilt on her blog and I even went so far as to cut out each little piece per her measurements.  But it was sooooooo easy.  Go take a look....go on.  See?  That is so not a pattern, right?


It's made from the super fun Peas and Carrots line and coordinating solids, stippled all over, and I *heart* the pieced back. 


So, thanks for stopping by my little blog on this festival tour!  Now go check out everyone else's creations!  : )  Come back later and see what I've been up to this week (once I get it finished, find my camera, and get it all up here.....how 'bout Sunday?)!

The large scale blocks have a sturdy little boy feel. I heart the back too, it looks like a fence on a big grass patch and the sky above.
