"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

Spring 2010 Blogger Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side is hosting another Blogger Quilt Festival. It is so much fun visiting blogs and checking out all the beautiful quilts!






I would like to share one of the first quilts I made! It is a flag quilt constructed from log cabin blocks and friendship stars (beginner friendly). 
I think that is is the "It's a Grand Old Flag" from The Whole Country Caboodle. The fabrics were probably from Joannes. I did the quilting in a curvy pattern, trying to follow the stripes, but I didn't even have a walking foot at this point in my quilting career!
I love this little quilt and I keep this out most of the year!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you had fun visiting! Now go look at the other great entries!!
