For the birds- Bloggers Quilt Festival

One of my favorite spring (and fall events) is the Bloggers' Quilt Festival run by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side.  It is a great opportunity to see what is happening now in the quilt world.  I'm sharing an antique crib quilt that has captured my heart.  Here's a close up:
