Bloggers Quilt Festival

This is such a great idea....Bloggers Quilt Festival!,
Check out all the great entries Amy's Creative Side.  The only problem  is you can spend hours and hours looking at all the amazing quilts and other projects....so much inspiration!

For my entry I have to pick one of my favorites....

I made this quilt for a wedding present for a good friend. It is from a Jelly Roll of "Sunkissed"

and the pattern is from the book "Jelly Roll Inspiration" by Pam and Nicky Lintott...

I found what I thought was the perfect fabric for the backing... It was the perfect yellow, and had the words "princess", "castle", "once upon a time" and "castles" written across the fabric....Perfect!

Then, ...when I was preparing the backing, I noticed in small letters...fairly faint....the word "kiss the toad"!!!!!!   If you look really closely you can see it just under the crown. I had a moment of second thought....could I give this as a wedding present???

Well...I decided...yes I could! Hopefully the new groom won't look too closely at the back of the quilt!! LOL

  9. Beautiful quilt for the newlyweds; you have to remember that even a handsome groom sometimes turns into a toad!
