My Bloggers’ Quilt Festival Entry


Posted on May 20th, by Amy in Bloggers Quilt Festival. 30 comments

I almost didn’t get a quilt in the festival this week!  But here I am blogging at the last minute – it just didn’t seem right to not have a post!

This is one of my favorite quilts, that I made and wrote a pattern for after turning in all my quilts for Modern Basics.  It was a simple, relaxed, meditative process, instead of the rush of book production.  I really enjoyed taking my time with it, even though it did go together pretty quick!

I used linen with Moda Crossweaves which I love.  They are so vibrant and yet have subtle variations to them.

The touch of color in the binding is one of my favorite details, and I love the heft that the linen gives to the entire quilt.  It is quite snuggly to sit with on the couch!

I hope you have enjoyed the festival – I know I have!

  2. Your quilt is lovely – soothing colours, clear lines, very laid-back. Thanks for sharing and thank you again for hosting this awesome event – a twice-a-year milestone for me.

  3. Your quilt looks great. Love the colours and the design. It is good that you have had the chance to sew for yourself and not a rush for deadline. Seems to make everything a lot easier.

  4. lovely–i keep being amazed at solid fabric quilts that i like when i keep thinking i don’t like solid fabric quilts!!! a soothing quilt to look at and i’m sure it must feel as wonderful as you’ve described. thanks again amy for hosting this–you’re such a trouper and fantastic to have such a supporter of the rest of us quilter/bloggers out here in cyberspace. have a great day–am sure it’ll be a lot easier with this all accomplished

  9. I kept looking for your posting – you did just make it. What a wonderful time I am sure everyone has had “crusing” through the blogs. So inspiring and some of the stories just grip your heart. Judy C

  10. This is a great quilt! I love the simplicity of it. I’m finding I enjoy quilts like this one more and more in my quilting journey. It’s very peaceful to look at…if that makes sense. Thank you SO much for hosting such an awesome festival! This was my first time participating and I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s quilts, as well as meeting some great blogger’s.

  11. What a lovely quilt, it looks like it’s been around for years and years and well loved and then I look at the design and see it’s so up to date, great mix. Thanks for BQF.

  12. Really like it, Amy. It has a well-loved look- I can almost imagine snuggling under it.
    I have been visiting entries and enjoying them so much this spring. So much inspiration and what a lovely way to meet new blog-friends. Thank you again for sharing and for being the ‘Connector’! :)

  13. Hmmm…..
    Looks exactly like something I made… Okay, my brown may have been darker and one version was more girly and one more boy-ee (LOL). Way too many babies this past year… But it’s super nice when you can make three at once……..
    Thanks for the idea!
