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!
