quilt festival time!

Here's my entry into the blogger's quilt festival!
This is a simple baby quilt using lots of scraps!
That cute blue border was a remnant that I bought.
Everything else was a "scrap".
I made this a long time ago and never could let it go.
All my babies are grown, or growing up...
so maybe this will be for one of those
"hoped for" grandbabies.
Who knows?
When I made this I had not attempted tiny piecing
like those nine-patches in this quilt.
I was so proud of myself for accomplishing that!

I quilted a simple diagonal line.
I was just learning to quilt when I made this.
Have fun looking at everyone's quilt.

There's a LOT of quilting going on!
