Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2010

It's time for the Fall 2010 Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy, from Amy's Creative Side! My entry is  my first Cathedral Window Quilt it is more of a mini quilt but I am proud of it none the less!  I had been wanting to try this style for many years but was aways intimidated by it, it was actually much easier than I thought.  A time consuming style but the outcome is more than rewarding!  I love how it looks up against the light.  I guess I do not have any specific "story" to tell, I used all of my favorite fabrics on a white background, I hope to make a much larger one some day!  I can not wait to visit all of you other quilters!

Happy Quilt Festival!  Meg

Wow. Every time I see cathedral windows, it just makes me stop and say wow, because it's just so labor intensive, or at least seems that way! Gorgeous fabric selection, too. This is definitely one of my favorite quilts in the festival so far! :)
