My Entry to the Festival


                                                                

This is my first time to enter a quilt in Amy's Quilt Festival. I'm excited to be able to join in, Thanks Amy.

I was in a local fabric shop and came upon this V W Bug fabric and knew I had to make my sister a quilt with some. It is just so cute and she loves the little bugs.
I sewed this from a pattern I printed out from EQ.
It was my first attempt at paper piecing and I  have
to say I loved it. I will be doing more.
Here are the bugs. Aren't they just adorable?
 
and some bicycles
 
and some scooters.
I love this quilt.
 
When I started to print out my pattern there were four blocks.
I looked closely and thought I only needed one block x 4
so that is what I printed.
WRONG! If I would have printed the four
blocks all of my prints would have been facing the
right way (I think). 
I still love this quilt and would like to snuggle up with it and
keep it for myself
but I know she will love it too.
 
The Quilt size is 59x72.
Paper Pieced and Quilted by me.
 
Go check out the rest of the quilts
 
Thanks for looking - Carol

I like the design, did you design it in EQ? Or is it one of their blocks?
