Bloggers Quilt Festival 2013

This is my 3rd year participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side and I decided to enter the Variable Sawtooth Star Quilt which is based off a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.

This is the biggest quilt I have ever made and am proud to claim that I quilted it on my home sewing machine. I absolutely love the way it turned out. It has a nice drape to it and is large enough to cover a king size bed. I gifted this quilt to a dear friend who just celebrated a milestone birthday and I know it has found a good home where it will be cherished.

You can read about the making of the quilt: here, here, here & here
