Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2014

Well, if anything can get me back into blogging, it's the
Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Once again, Amy's Creative Side is hosting this biannual event.
It is always so much fun to participate in this, and see what everyone has been up to since the Spring Festival.
My entry will be seen in the Small Quilt category.
This is Pathways
I made this quilt using HRT's , and various low volume prints.
While I'm the first to admit low volume is not a favourite for me, it did work rather well in this quilt!
It measures 52"x 59"
For me, basting is always 505 spray, with a few pins around the perimeter of the quilt.
 I used this great fabric for the back that has all the months on it, and even invented a couple new months!
For the quilting, I set up my Janome Horizon with this serpentine stitch. There were a lot of steps to set this up, but it turned out really well, and I can hardly wait to use it again.
The thread I used is my favourite Aurifil #2600 grey.

I'm so happy with this quilt!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and please check out all the other entries in the Festival.
I hope you have entered a quilt too!
