Can't believe it's that time again!
Thank you Amy for all your hard work in hosting this fun event.
Welcome to new visitors to my blog.
I hope you like what you see. Poke around and look at my stuff!
For this festival I am showing a quilt that I just finished.
machined pieced and quilted by me!
I started this quilt this summer at Quilting by the Lake.
Under the direction of the fabulous Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
This quilt is inspired by a quilt in her 15 Minutes of Play book.
But I super-sized it and modified the block layout.
Victoria let me borrow her giant diamond template to get started.
(I'm still hoping she will produce and sell these!)
This is the first rendition.
Then my teacher, the grasshopper, said,
"Turn it around let's see how it looks the other way."
She is always right.
Hehe. Like it both ways.
The class helped me pick out the setting fabrics.
BUT . . . could find enough of it to finish.
So it languished on my design wall all summer.
Sassy V in her QBL apron for the auction.
She is a great teacher! Take her class if you get a chance.
Now back to the star . . .
I kept flipping it back and forth
trying to decide which way I liked it best.
In the end, I went with the original design.
I like the two different purples and oranges in the center,
gives it a bit of pop.
I did echo channel quilting about 3/4" apart, but VERY organic.
a pieced back . . .
a label . . .
a rolled end . . .
ready to go.
This quilt is being donated to the Greenwich Breast Cancer Alliance
for their silent auction on November 6th.
I made them one last year and was happy to be asked again this year.
Kinda hoping this is a new tradition for me too!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you are enjoying all the eye candy
at the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
Thanks again to Amy for putting it all together.
