It's that time of year again. The big kids are off playing at Quilt Market while the little kids stay home and take part in the virtual Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by the remarkable Amy. It's always fun to see fabulous quilts made by people that are new to me as well as my old favourites :) If you're new here, hello, we hope you'll find something that will make you want to come back again. If you're a regular you're welcome as always!
I couldn't resist jumping on the band wagon earlier this year. This quilt pushed me right out of my comfort zone and saw me wander from the safety of using a whole fabric line from one designer. I absolutely love the end result and it's fair to say that I'm a lot braver with my fabric choices now. Here's an in progress shot so you can see some of the fabrics a bit more clearly. Many of my favourite designer's are represented in this little lot.
I had fun hand quilting with a lime coloured perle 8 thread once I'd done some basic straight line quilting to stabilise the top and backing.
There are loads of fabulous entries in the throw quilt category so don't forget to check the others out! I'll be back tomorrow with another entry. Happy weekend to you all. Catch you soon x
