Blogger's Quilt Festival

Brooke's, originally uploaded by shanleytulip.
My Blogger's Quilt Festival post is about the quilt I made my sister for her 30th birthday. Well, I gave her the top for her 30th birthday, I just didn't have the skills to quilt it until she was almost 33. I learned the importance of a good sewing machine for applique as this one had a lot of it. I used interfacing on the long white strips and probably should have used something a little thinner, but it held it together well enough.

Check out the rest of the posts at Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival.
