Blogger's Quilt Festival



I love Amy's idea for Blogger's Quilt Festival. I didn't participate in the spring but I am here now to showcase a quilt!


My quilt is made mostly from Snippets fabric by American Jane (Moda) and a couple of orange scraps I had on hand. I took a pattern from Quilts and More and reschemed it a bit because I wanted a 48" x 48" quilt instead of the larger quilt featured in the magazine.




I love the vibrant colors of the fabric. The red, blue, yellow, orange and greens all blend together beautifully with one another. Each center square either has a yellow, green, or orange square, creating a pattern amist all the chaos. And each square is either surrounded by all red fabric or all blue and then every other square is red, blue, red, blue, and so on. It all came together much lovelier than I hoped!






The finished quilt was long-arm-quilted with a flower pattern using green thread.




Thanks for visiting!
