I think everyone loves the Blogger's Quilt Festival, what a wonderful way to see so many beautiful quilts in every style you can imagine. One of my favorite things about the Festival is looking back on my quilts and picking one that is my favorite right now, which one do I love the best?
My quilts are usually all about color and fun, this quilt certainly fits that description.
I made this for the "Let's Book It" challenge at Vrooman's Quilts. I don't normally use a pattern, or I should say "follow a pattern", but this one was to cute not to, it's Gumdrops by Nancy Mahoney.
Lots of great color and it all came together really fast, the shapes are appliqued, no curved sewing, that's a big Yeah!
What I loved most was the border, I'm not a big border person but this one really makes the whole quilt pop. Love It!
The quilt finished at 40 1/2 inches square, I machine outline stitched the petals and circles so they all puff beautifully and the quilt stayed nice and soft. I'm putting this in the small quilts category.
Thanks so much for coming by, I know there's a lot of quilts to look at and I'm off to hop around and be amazed.
Such a happy quilt. Good choice for the festival.ReplyDelete
