Blogger's Quilt Festival

<div align="center"><a href="" title=""><img src="" alt="" style="border:none;" /></a></div>
Thought I would join in the fun and enter my quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival
I named this quilt 'Night Blooms"- couldn't think of anything better.
I tried my hand at this one and did something new to me.
I scalloped the edges for a better look and it was well worth it.
I had never done a scallop before.
It wasn't too difficult. 
I also did some trapunto work.
Now that was a little time consuming.
But definately well worth it.
Now you can go back to the Blogger's Quilt Festival and vote for my quilt.
Thanks for stopping by

Dear Jane remembered

Since I finished my quilt I needed to find something to do.
What can I say - the choices are limitless.
I didn't really want to start another quilt since I have so many going already.
So that left finding something that has already been started.
I knew I don't have enough time to complete anything so I decided on Dear Jane.
I worked on these part of the day Friday and most of the day Saturday.
I have one quilt with muslin background and one with white.
A little hindsight and I think I would rather done one with a darker color background.
So sad...So sorry --it's not happening now.

As usual the camera doesn't show the true colors. 

This will put me at 55 squares completed (for each)out of 225.
I'm not even halfway.
If I don't forget about it again I might finish it before I croke.
