In just the nick of time I've joined parkcity girls first online quilt festival. http://parkcitygirl.blogspot.com/2009/04/quilt-festival-spring-2009.html

I don't have alot of quilts to choose from as I am pretty new to the quilt world. It wasn't hard to pick though as I absolutely love Isabella's quilt! I made this quilt for my niece Isabella for her first birthday and it just makes you smile just like she makes me smile. She is a little angel who I love sooooo much. She was born with gastrocysis(where the bowel is outside the belly) so had a bit of a rough start but has healed wonderfully and is an absolute doll. This quilt is unique as it has a few concepts going as you can see. I got the wonderful *free* applique pattern from http://dontlooknow.typepad.com/dont_look_now/
Here she is with her new quilt and she even let me take it back for a bit for our quilt show that my guild is putting on this weekend. Thanks Isabella...Auntie loves you, xoxoxo

This is FABULOUS!!!!!!! Love all that white, it really makes the colors pop. This is the perfect quilt for such a darling little girl!

Beautiful quilt and beautiful little girl too! They make a great set!
I was thinking of you and wanted to let you know I just `finally` finished the machine quilting on my nine patch... the one that's like yours! I ran out of thread and it took quite a while to find something that would work to get it finished. Hopefully I can bind tomorrow and post on Monday... at least that's tha plan!
Have a great Sunday!
Blessings, Kimberly
