Blogger's Quilt Festival-Scarlette's Zig Zag Quilt



I have missed out on the last two quilt Festivals and have been waiting patiently to participate in this one. This is a fun blog wide event put on by Amy for all of us quilters to show our favorite finished quilt.

First off .. Why am I naming it after Scarlette?   Because I started it when I was nine months pregnant with her, I finished the top right after she was born, while she slept on my sewing room floor.  And one year-ish later I finally put it all together.  Still hand stitching the binding down but didn't want to miss out on the festival.

Here is a link to the original post when I finished the top.
  
 The entire quilt is vintage sheets.
 This quilt is for me for now....... Scarlette Grace will get it someday.  

You still have a couple of days to join the fun so pop over and link up to the festival.
