Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2012

Welcome Everyone to Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival!

If you are new, thanks for stopping by,
and if you've been here before, 
I'm showing you a quilt you have already seen,
so thanks for being patient! 

This is my Triangles Galore Metro Mod Bee Block Quilt.
I just finished this quilt a few weeks ago, and I love it!

(70" x 50") 

My fellow Metro Mod Members helped me with the blocks.
Didn't they do a lovely job?!
I was July's Queen Bee.
I sent everyone very bright fabrics and asked them to make
Victoria's Triangles Galore Block.   The only thing that needed to remain
constant was the purple fabric in the corners.


On the back I used a Brandon Mably fish print.
It is so fun and whimsical.


I did a lot of free motion quilting on this one.
I wanted to practice that skill because it's been a while.
(I tend to do a lot of straight line quilting.)
This quilt was the perfect one to practice on because 
it is so bright and busy.
I tried pebble quilting, (for the first time!),  in the little border and I LOVED it!
So forgiving, but the result is tremendous.
I did do some straight line quilting on the outside border, 
you know "old dog, new tricks!"


 I am very pleased with the way it turned out.


This quilt now lives with the kid. (my daughter)
I know she will love it and use it and snuggle under it for a long while.

Thanks to Amy for putting this festival together.
I so look forward to each festival when it comes along. 
I know it's a lot of work and Amy, WE APPRECIATE IT!
And thanks to all of you for stopping by.
I hope you are enjoying everything you see!

  1. I've never done a block bee, but what a great idea! Sending out fabric and patterns, then getting finished blocks back--what could be better than that? Love this quilt, and the Brandon fabric is fantastic. I'd like to get some, have to keep an eye out for it on sale online somewhere. Sewing and quilting is so much fun!
