Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry

I wanted to join in on the Bloggers Quilt Festival and am sharing a quilt that I have shown in the past.  Several of my blog friends may remember it and those who don't may enjoy it for the first time.  One of the reasons I joined the Bloggers Quilt Festival is to meet more blog friends in blogland.  I hope if you come for a visit you will stay and see more of my quilting.

My entry is a very simple Schnibbles pattern called, "Hot Cross" however I've named mine "My Sweet Addiction."  I was so pleased that I custom quilted it to keep for myself.

 I'm a longarm quilter for those new to my blog. I don't have alot of piecing time to make larger quilts so I have this little addiction to Schnibble quilts.  A Schnibble pattern to me is "instant gratification" quilting; usually the patterns require two charm packs and a little extra additional fabric.  This enables me to "try out" different fabric lines without breaking the bank.
 Schnibbles quilts make great wall-hangings and table toppers.  This one measures 30" x 30".  This is one of my favorites.

I do remember this quilt, I think it's one of my favourites of yours too. If ever you get fed up with it, I know a house where it would look just perfect! (Hint, that house just might be in the UK.)

Gorgeous quilting!

This is a blue ribbon winner for sure! I always love the colors you use. I just posted my "Little Twister (?)" win from your blog give-away so long ago. I told you that it takes 9 months to a year to get my stuff back so now you know I wasn't lying! I love how it turned out. It's my new favorite table topper. Thanks again for choosing me to win this treasure!
