Blogger quilt festival

It's been a while. I kinda took the summer off to spend more time with the kiddos and then school started and I just fell out of the habit of blogging and checking blogs. I've still been sewing...just haven't been sharing as much of it on here.  So here's a quilt that I made for my newest nephew. My sister-in-law didn't know the gender so I made a gender neutral quilt with yellows and grays.

I'm entering this one into the Small Quilt Category for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It finished at about 36"x40".  I used a big mix of fabrics...some from my stash and then some I picked out.  No pattern, just a simple patchwork.  I did quilt this one on my machine with a 1/4 inch along each of the seams.  I machine sewed the binding on this time since it might be used and washed a little more than a regular quilt. If you haven't already, go check out all of the other amazing quilts from the Blogger quilt festival.  I'm linking up to Amy's Creative Side and Crazy Mom Quilts.
