It is time for the third annual Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side. My entry for this year is my Goldfish Quilt I made for my new baby.
I chose this quilt because it is the quilt that jump started me back into quilting after a long break. I was pregnant and wanted something new for the new baby. I had been hoarding the Heather Ross Goldfish fabric for 2 years in hopes that I would someday have another boy to sew for. As soon as I found out that Rowan was a boy I got to work.
I fell in love with the log cabin style at the time. I was log cabin crazy! I decided that would be a great design to showcase the little fish 🙂
This quilt took me a loooong time to make. I was a total perfectionist and planned the layout several times before finally putting it all together.
I had seen pieced backings around and really wanted to try that with this quilt. I was very intimidated by it but I really love how it turned out. I learned, that if you have a will to make something, you can do anything you set your mind to! This quilt really showed me that. It really forced me out of my box and now I finally feel like I have found my quilting groove.
I love that we use this little quilt every single day. It is his floor quilt. The quilt he plays on. He loves to look at all thec colors and patterns. It makes my heart swell with pride and love knowing that I made this for him and that he enjoys it. 🙂
I truly love quilting and I am so glad that I am back in the game!
