Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013 . . . . second entry

When I realized I could enter a second quilt in the festival,
I just had to enter my DWR block!

My guild, the NYC Metro Mod Guild
is sponsoring a DWR Challenge.
I am a judge, so I can't enter the competition,
but I can show it here!  Hehehe.

I started with a hunk of "made fabric" a la Victoria.

Then I cut the curves.

Used a million pins.
I'm not afraid of curved piecing, and you shouldn't be either!

I put a nice black and white border on it.

I just love this little quilt.
In fact, someone asked me if it was a placemat!
It's about 17" in diameter.
So then I thought . . . 
What a great idea!  Wedding ring place mats for wedding presents!
I'm on it!  Going to whip some up.

I used this great Matisse fabric for the backing.

The DWR Challenge is open right now.  The deadline is December 1st.
Lots of great prizes.  Give it a whirl!  It's not hard at all.

Amy!  Thank you for another great festival.
And the chance to enter two quilts!


  1. What a gorgeous quilt! I love the backing! Where did you get the fabric? The black and white binding is the perfect finishing touch.

    1. Thanks Julie! I got most of this fabric at the City Quilter in NYC, Some is stash scraps from years ago.

  2. I love this!! It's so effective as a circle. The backing is brilliant too.

  3. What a beautiful little quilt!! You always do such fun things!
