Blogger's Quilt Festival


Instead of sitting here pouting because I am not at Quilt Market right now (which I am secretly doing), I thought I'd join Amy's online Bloggers' Quilt Festival.  Amy is asking that people create a new blog post about a quilt they've made and link up on her website.




I wanted to blog about a quilt that I snuggle under every single day.  The pattern is called Urban Amish and was designed by a woman who works at the adorable Quilt shop in Chicago, Quiltology.  I call this one, Val's Girlie Urban Amish Quilt.  Original name, I know!  :)



This quilt is one of the only things in my house that is pink.  Three boys and a husband calls for a lot of blue.  I decided that I needed something just for me and it was going to be super girlie.  This quilt was part of the inspiration behind the name of my blog.  I love, love, love those boys, but I just need a place to escape and share my girlie pink side and this is where I can do it! 



I can't wait to go check out the other quilts featured at the Quilt Festival.

  1. Love it and your quilt model too! I also have three boys and can appreciate your love of something with a bit of pink ... but wouldn't trade my boys for the world. Dirt and mud and all!
