Quilt Festival - Heart's Desire

It's Quilt Festival time again at Amy's Creative Side.  I always love it when she does this.  It gives me a special chance to show off one of my quilts and I get to see so many beautiful quilts that I wouldn't run across naturally in my blogging.  
I'm entering the quilt I did with Esther's Mystery Block of the Month last year.  It did take me most of a year to complete.  This was the first time I worked online with a group and my first mystery quilt.  I did not know what I was getting into.  But I loved it!








You can see more pictures at this post of the finished quilt.
