Blogger's Quilt Festival: my second entry is....

So, I spent all weekend deciding which quilt I wanted to enter as my second entry in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side and.....

I decided to enter my Pretty Little Giant Star Surround quilt because the colors were completely out of my comfort zone and right now it is my all time favorite quilt. It's been on my bed since the moment it came out of the dryer...I LOVE IT! I also really loved how the pictures came out and decided to enter it in the Quilt Photographer Category. If you want to read more about this quilt and a funny story about my encounter while taking these pictures, please check out my original post here.
