I always look forward to the twice yearly Blogger's Quilt Festival. I love seeing all the quilty amazingness in blogland in one place. So much talent and inspiration.
I am entering 2 quilts. This one, I think, is my absolute favourite of all the quilts I have made and I am entering it into the large quilt category. It started as a quilt-along back in March 2013 and we made 3 blocks a week from Tula Pink's City Sampler book.
I have used a variety of fabrics, but mainly Tula Pink, a bit of Denyse Schmidt, and one or 2 prints from other designers that just went with my colour scheme. The solids are Kona, Cotton Couture and Art Gallery.
It is so hard to pick a fav block, but there are some I love a little more than others. I think my number 1 fav has to be that adorable hedgehog, and of course purple is my fav colour as well.
For the back, I pieced together some of my larger cuts of Tula Pink along with a piece from Joel Dewberry as well. that just went so well with the colours I had already chosen.
I didn't feel up to the challenge of quilting it on my home machine so took it to a long arm quilter and told her she could quilt it however she wanted! I love what she did with it. Simple, but so effective... Alternating wavy lines in each block and a spiral in the sashing.
And a final photo...
Thanks so much to Amy for hosting another Blogger's Quilt Festival. Please go and check out all the quilty awesomeness there...
