Bloggers Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side

I think we all love the Blogger's Quilt Festival, so much beauty, talent and inspiration all in one place. I do want to thank Amy for all of the work she puts into this, Amy you're amazing.

This is my current favorite quilt. About every third quilt I try to follow directions and make a quilt block, it's my attempt at learning. 





I hand dyed the aqua sashing since once I had that color in my head nothing else would do and of course I didn't have any in my stash.

I kept trying to figure out an individual design to quilt on the separate flowers, but nothing seemed right and the quilt wasn't talking to me. Finally it decided to shout. I quilted different size spirals all over and it turned out to be perfect. I love the look and the texture is amazing.


I hope you're enjoying the festival, I'm off to enjoy it myself,
Thanks for coming by,
Dana

  2. Girl this is just beautiful!!!!
    The colors are so soft and yet tropical without the heat....great job on the dying. But the spirals....my favorite design....just maximize it by creating the soft tropical breeze we all love. You did a great job.
