Bloggers' Quilt Festival....

This year, once again, I am joining in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side.

The quilt I'm sharing is not new to my blog, it's one of my favourites and has been quite popular.
If you haven't already met, I would like to introduce Sabrina....


I had always wanted to do a star sampler, so I went about designing one on EQ6. Once I had finished the centre blocks I decided that it need a border so once again i used my trusty EQ6.
I loved the finished top and I knew it need special treatment when it came to quilting. I am very lucky to be a longarmer with a fabulous quilting machine. So up she went onto the frame for some quilty love. When I did this quilt I hadn't done many custom quilts. This was a real learning curve for me.








Sabrina is currently hanging in a local quilt shop as I am teaching classes on her. She also made an appearance at the local charity quilt show recently.


Go over to Amy's blog and check it out. I hope you enjoy the festival...

Happy Quilting
Leanne
