It's such a great idea and I love that she encourages both new and more experienced quilters to show off a quilt that they love. Amy, thanks so much for taking the time to put this on. Now click on over to Amy's site so you can see all the beautiful quilts made by other fantastic quilters.
My favorite quilt is not a particularly intricate or complicated quilt (because, let's face it, I'm a quasi-newbie quilter who's still working on the basics), but it's still my favorite all the same.
I have a love affair with log cabin blocks. There's something so soothing about just going around and around and around and seeing all the patterns and colors come together. I love the process so much that I refuse to interrupt it by stopping to measure each piece before sewing it on (heresy!), so my blocks tend to come out a bit wonky but I love them all the same.
This quilt was made for my daughter. It's big enough to fit a twin bed and as I was going around and around with each log cabin I thought about how I'll put it on her bed when she outgrows her crib, and how it'll stay on her bed as she grows up in our home, and how maybe, one day, she'll pack it up and take it off to college with her.

* Now just watch, she's going to grow up and want a Justin Beiber quilt on her bed!
