Bloggers' Quilt Festival

I have had a hard time deciding which quilt to post for the Quilt festival. But I finally decided on the Mermaid Quilt that I made my daughter. Every morning when I wake her up, I see that quilt and think "gosh  it's pretty". I just love it!.


When I saw this fabric I fell in love. I wanted it for myself but my daughter convinced me that she need it more than I did and her birthday was coming up too. So like a good mom I caved and she picked the pattern and I made this quilt for her. We took a trip to Florida at Christmas just as I was finishing the quilt so I took it with us so it the mermaids could see the ocean. :)
