Blogger's quilt festival...my applique quilt

 I have posted about this quilt before, but it is a favorite of mine.
It is from the book Critters Dancin' in the moonlight.
 I started it when Jared and Sarah were expecting Lucas. I think I started in the winter and he was born in June. I started with the barn panel thinking if I didn't think I could hand applique the whole thing I at least wanted the farm panel.
 I keep going and got it done!!!

 I quilted it myself on my almost 40 year old machine it is a Good Housekeeper has anyone heard of that brand? I always say it's the only good housekeeper that lives here LOL.







 It was a labor of love.                                      
 This one is Regan's our youngest grandchild.
 Same book only I embroider the animals and colored them in. I set with an iron.
 I didn't quilt this one. I wanted it done just like the one in the book.




same pattern 2 different ways:)
I love them both. Regan's hang above his crib in his John Deere room.
Gotta go look at  the rest of the quilts in the festival. Just click on the button on the right side of my blog Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Those are both too cute - I'll bet the kids love them! A labor of love is right, but those animals are just darling. I just might have to look for this book...just in case. I'm a newbie appliquer (is that even a word?), but I imagine I might have it figured out after working on this quilt.
