I love love love Blogger's Quilt Festival! Sometimes it takes me several days to look at all of the links, but it is one way I've found a bunch of blogs I want to keep reading.
My entry for this festival has got to be the Orange Crush quilt. For the entire back story and all the mistakes made along the way, you can click "Orange Crush" in the tags for this post and it will take you along the journey. For the festival, suffice it to say that this was not a quilt in a day kind of project.
Orange Crush was a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt from way back in 2008. I started it right after Bonnie came to speak at our guild meeting, which was also the spark that got me blogging to begin with. She's an inspiration, I tell ya!

I can't tell you what a little thrill it gives me every morning when I wake up Gracie and unearth her from her quilted burrow, or at night when I peek in on her sprawled under its bold colors, with just a few toes peeking out.
