Bloggers Quilt Festival

Thanks Amy, for another fabulous Quilt Festival.
You know we just can't wait, for it to roll around.

I've been busy as a beaver the past few days trying to get my
entry finished in time.

Whew!  Made it with just hours to spare.


My entry in the "Scrappy" category, is my 
Quilt Show BOM from 2014.


A-Z for Ewe and Me
by Janet Stone

This one called my name for quite awhile, before I took the plunge and renewed my membership.
I looked at it for months, then threw caution to the wind and jumped in.


This is just something about all the blocks that I couldn't shake.


and that border, that just make it pop!


But these adorable little lambs...
They got me hook, line, and sinker.
:-)


Here I am working away on it, at our quilt retreat last month.
I actually put the wine away when I worked on this one!
If you've read my blog...you know what trouble we got into with the wine!
LOL!!
The true sign of a wildly successful retreat.
(And I know the others agree)
TEE HEE...



I had all the blocks together when I left.

What a great stash buster this was. The only fabric I bought 
was the dark blue for the border. Don't you just love it, 
when you actually shop your stash?

Oh and that little machine that was using at retreat...
That's the one I quilted the entire quilt on.
This 68" x 87" quilt, is just shy of double size.
It's was a first for me, to attempt something this large.
And what fun it was!

Thanks for visiting the MooseStash, and feel free to drop in anytime!

 Enjoy the rest of the hop.

I know you'll find some incredible talent right...  
That's bound to capture your heart!
Thanks again Amy, your the best.
;-)

  8. Just lovely! I love how the dark sashing makes each block pop and stand on its own. yet they make such a pretty statement collectively.

  9. WONDERFUL. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comment.. I love that you just finished this same project. I had selected light background fabric for the borders, but yours are STUNNING. I'm switching colors to the darker blue!!!!. I'm really excited to get them done now. .
