24 May Blogger’s Quilt Festival
I am excited to participate in Amy’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I certainly had a lot of fun last time looking at such a wonderful collection of quilts.
It is difficult to decide which quilt is my “favorite”. In the end, I chose “A New View” because I haven’t talked about it before and it still makes me smile when I look at it.
- The quilting. I quilted a squared spiral design in the brown blocks, a diagonal design in the blue blocks and a triangle design in the sashing.
- The brown – it is much richer in real life.
- The process of finding all the browns (I did use a lot of scraps from my stash, but I had to buy some new ones too).
I do love working with scraps in a limited color range (another favorite example here). I haven’t been doing much of that lately, but I am not finished with the idea and I know I have more quilts of this type in my future.
I hope you enjoy Amy’s Quilt Festival! I plan to set aside some time tomorrow to indulge my need for quilt beauty!
