Blogger's Quilt Festival :: Fall 2017

So it's that time of year again . . .

This year the prizes are drawn randomly for all entries,
and all the quilts are on one page.

Love it!

Here is my entry for the festival.

I started this quilt about two and a half years ago.
The block is from Lady Harvatine,

I was having a sewing day with my queeps 
in NYC . . .  
I grabbed the pattern and the fabric and started making blocks.
And . . . . I got about this far.

Then it sat in a box for two years
while I worked on other things.

 Fast forward to last June
and another sewing day in the city with my sewing buddies.

I churned out more blocks and put this top together.

I wanted to make it bigger and decided to add borders,
but to have the curves spill over into them.

I drafted new pattern pieces so I could achieve this look.

My Meandering quilt hung in
my quilt show at the Darien Library this past summer,
and it was very well received.

So well in fact, the library bought it.
They especially loved the dictionary print I used for the background.
It hangs permanently on the second floor.
Now that is very exciting for me!

Thanks so much to Amy for the 
And bringing it back to its roots.
Hope you all enjoy perusing the fabulous quilts.
