Blogger’s Quilt Festival…

image

There is ALWAYS something happening in Blogland…now it’s the Blogger’s Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy’s Creative Side…I LOVE this festival!!  I am praying for rain this weekend so that I can justify sitting in front of the computer for HOURS ohhhhing and ahhhhhing all the quilts in the show. 

I had no problems picking the quilt that I want to enter…it’s the quilt currently on my Blog Header.  I just finished it last week and mailed it off to baby Isobel.  P1070810It is such a happy quilt and I loved the fact that I used scraps of fabric from my stash!! 

P1020628The secret to making a quilt that makes you smile…is to pick happy fabrics to make your happy blocks…P1020630 ..and you are guaranteed to get a happy quilt!!   P1070806   This was such a fun quilt to make!  I used a variety of fabrics cut into 1”-2” wide strips which I paper pieced onto 8 inch squares of paper.P1070809   If you are visiting my blog for the first time make sure you leave a comment…I always love to hear from new folks!

  9. I LOVE your quilt! I made this pattern for one of my grandsons with blue center strings and gold star corner stones. I have been planning to make one for his sister out of pastels and sherbet colors. After seeing yours I think the white centers will be perfect.

    Thanks for sharing.

  32. Beautiful Quilt! I like the method of using paper instead of foundation fabric. I take it you took the paper off before quilting. I find when using the fabric, it makes the quilt too heavy, even before it's layered. next time I make a string quilt, it's paper for me.

  43. This is definitely a happy and beautiful quilt! What a special gift for the little one that you created it for!

    I am a novice quilter, with many unfinished projects...and only have completed mini quilts for an exchange and one wall hanging! I hope to complete some at least crib size for our future grandbabies.

    Blessings & Aloha!
