Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's time again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  It is so inspiring looking at all of the beautiful creations that so many have made.  I couldn't resist entering my little quilt that I made for the Table Topper Blog Hop.  My favorite was the one I made with the little hand prints to represent my 8 grandchildren.

Please forgive the quality of the photo.  The actual quilt is in storage and can't be unearthed right now.

Bloggers Quilt Festival Stats:  
Mini quilt 12x12 inches
Machine quilted by me
Machine applique technique  
Hand embroidered
The story behind the little hands is...well...I'm a nurse and was at an assisted facility seeing patients one day and as usual was pondering what I was going to make for my table topper blog hop quilt when I spied a cute little foam hand on the top of a door.  It was there to remind the staff to always wash their hands.  I loved the shape and everything about it so I pulled it off the door and traced it.   When I got home I made this little quilt.  I placed a name right next to each hand.  I would have loved to use the actual hand prints but the  grand kids are spread out several hundred miles so I improvised. 
I hope everyone has a great time looking at all of the beautiful inspiration that the Bloggers Quilt Festival has to offer.   Click HERE to see it all.
As always thanks for stopping by I love each and every comment you give me and look forward to hearing from you all again.


  1. This is absolutely darling! So cute!

  2. Such a sweet little quilt-- and I love the story behind it. It's funny the things that inspire us sometimes. Who would have thought that foam hand could turn into something so special? Thanks so much for sharing!
