Blogger's Spring Festival 2010

So many changes have happened in each of our lives since the first Quilt Festival, perhaps you can spare a moment to share yours?
Both yesterday and today I have spent nursing a deformed butterfly for my 4-year-old daughter.  I feel like I've been through the wringer, but still I think it's important to participate in this Season's Quilt Festival as I have since it began.

My entry is The Cat Quilt, which my husband hung on the wall only yesterday evening. This quilt was my very first Block Challenge Swap. As I said naughty words over blocks that other Quilter’s had selected they were saying the same words about my cats. It has taken 6 months of thinking to put the blocks I selected into a quilt and I'm so glad to see it finished.

For me this quilt isn't just about the finish line, it's about the process. I was new to quilting when I started the swap and even as the blocks themselves increased in difficulty my own skills increased - Thank Heavens!

Happy Quilting!
