Blogger´s Quilt Festival

I know, that you have probably seen this one before. But its Blogger´s Quilt Fetival
and I participate with my poem quilt.
I made this a few months ago, because I like any kind of art with little poems or words. I browsed the internet and found this one by the irish poet "Samuel Lover" (cool name isn´t it?).
While I was piecing the letters I noticed that I coul have been more effective with cutting the fabric, but so for the next time I know it.
It was a bit stressful to quilt this huge one, but when I finished it, I was really happy. Now this quilt is one of my favorites to be laid on my bed.
I used some grey solid cotton and a layer cake of Tula Pink´s Plume collection. I love her collections, because they are so full of phantasy and creativity.

Happy Blogger´s Quilt Festival for you all!
And a wonderful weekend!
