Blogger's Quilt Festival


It's that time of year again when we quilters get together and admire each other's latest and greatest creations over at the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side. Do hop on over and see what goodies are in store for us this spring!

I will keep this post brief as I know you all have many quilts to visit! My contribution to the fun is my quilt made from the Drunkard's Path Quilt Along that I co-hosted last fall along with Kate from Needle and Spatula.


I used a layer cake of Ruby by Bonnie and Camille, along with my Accuquilt Go! Baby cutter to piece the top. Then, after all of those crazy curves, I decided to treat myself to some long-arm quilting by Jenny. I left my baby in her very capable hands and gave her free reign with quilting design. I could not be happier with the result! It is truly stunning, and has transformed the quilt from something good into something spectacular that I will cherish. My other quilts look like poor cousins in comparison. I could get used to this!



The back is a large floral from Bonnie and Camille's Bliss line. Finished quilt is a a nice lap size at 53" by 66". While this quilt is different in style in many ways than my others, it is very "me", and I am happy to say this one is not a gift, I will be keeping it. My new favourite!


Enjoy the festival! Thanks for stopping by!

The drunkards path die has been on my list for a while now and this quilt has helped bump it to the top. I adore the Ruby line and this quilt/quilting are amazing! Good luck!

Beautiful! I love this fabric line and what you've made with it is just stunning.

Sarcastic Quilter said...

I wish I had been able to participate in the QAL but I very much enjoy drooling over the resulting quilts created anyway and yours, well, there is everything to love about this baby! A great job with all the piecing and the quilting by Jenny is beautiful.

btw, I've seen your other quilts, they are not poor cousins, maybe just business attire to this one's formalware. -wink-
