I think I can safely say that I passed the first Sew-vivor test, choosing a quilt to enter. Phew, that was pretty tough to choose just one out of a plethora of quilts that I have made. Here is the winner!!!
What? I won?!!! REALLY and TRULY!!! I WON!!!? I Can't believe it!!! I'd like to thank... Oh wait, sorry I got carried away. I was just practicing. OK here is my entry project:
The "Disappearing 9-patch" from a tutorial video of Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

|Fabrics I chose for this quilt|
This is the center of the quilt. Hmm not quite big enough. Border time!!! Borders are a great way to accent the focal point of the quilt and to help make your quilt larger.
|Pink and Brown are a beautiful together.|
Flannel is the backing fabric of choice because you don't need batting and it is a much wider fabric. Most fabrics are 44" but flannel is 60" and of course it's warm and soft.
To help me with my quilts I always have my quilting kitty, Bremley and my quilt test Ceasar or Min Pin.

His favorite is a pillow and blanket.
It's time to add the borders. I love the polka dots, roses and stripes.
Another quilt top completed!!! And another quilt to add to my quilting scrapbook.
I love quilting and I love that my cat and dog follow me everywhere I go when I am making a quilt. Quilting is my passion my Quilting Kitty and Ceasar the Quilt Tester are my sunshine every day. Love you Bremley Boo and Ceasar Boy!!!
