Blogger's Quilt Festival- Spring 2013

This is a fun time of year, where I get so much inspiration from the fabulous work of other quilters.
As in previous Blogger's Quilt Festivals, our hostess is Amy @ Amy's Creative Side.

AmysCreativeSide.com


My first entry this year is Starry, Starry Night.
in the Favourite Scrap Quilt category-entry #12

This is the first string quilt using scraps I have ever done, and also the first time I used Navy as a primary colour in a quilt!
Who knew I would love navy so much!
This is a throw quilt measuring 61"x67".
For the backing, I used AMH voile and really love the feel of it.
 I really enjoyed quilting this one!
I quilted 1/4" on each side of the coloured seams, then used yellow, green and purple thread to quilt the intersections in the navy parts.
For the border, I quilted a tetris pattern.
I am also placing an entry into the
Favourite Quilt Photographer category.
This quilt is No Name Triangle-entry #3

I'm entering it because I went out into a snow storm to take these photos!
It is a lap quilt measuring 51"x55" using Chicopee.
I used a red 28wt. Auriful thread to do the circular quilting.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you are enjoying the Festival!

Excellent quilts, Patti! You are a much more dedicated photographer than I am. No way I would be out there in a snow storm!

Beautiful quilts. I like using navy in the place of black. I love the circular quilting and you were brave to go out into a snowstorm just to photograph a quilt. It did turn out good and well worth the effort.

Elizabeth said...

Love your scrappy star quilt! I made a navy quilt for the first time this year too (entered it in the bed quilt category), and was surprised at how much I liked it! I love the triangle quilt too, those colors look wonderful together.
