I don't usually go in for blog contests, but this is such a big one, and so much fun. Here's my entry. It's a simple four patch quilt. Except that I added applique blocks here and there, and even a redwork square. As a matter of fact, the teapot that I use for my logo is appliqued on this quilt, but it's on the side. That's why I used the teapot for my logo, it's tucked away in the corner, and would never be seen otherwise.
Why did I make this quilt? For thirty years or so, we lived in a little house and had a full sized bed--couldn't fit a bigger one than that into our bedroom--and that was the "master bedroom." When we moved in 2004, one of the first things we did was to buy a queen-sized mattress. So I needed a queen sized quilt! And this was the one I made. Those three patchwork and appliqued love hearts were on my husband's side of the bed--I put them there on purpose. I also appliqued a pair of lovebirds on the quilt, not visible in the photo.
