Welcome if you're jumping over from Amy's Creative Side for the fantastic
Blogger's Quilt Festival.

As an intro ...

Here is my entry into the Wall Hanging

I made this for the Modern She Made 3 swap.

I knew that I could do this as a challenge as it included stars
{I love stars & triangles of all sorts!}
This is for a secret partner, Lee from May Chappell

When I started my blog I was super excited to share my very first quilt during this festival.  I was so proud. 
This is my first time to participate since 2010.

I've been lacking in my finishes.

To remedy this Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I have been running a monthly goal {with sponsors} called 'A Lovely Year of Finishes'  we would love to have your join us.  It's been fantastic to see finishes - even some of my own.

Please go check out the other amazing quilts with this springs Bloggers Quilt Festival.
