Blogger Quilt Festival

This is my entry for the BQF. I love this quilt because it was the first one I completed start to finish without months of breaks in between. Since I made this quilt in January of this year I have been sewing continuously without long breaks in between projects.

I have met friends, completed a lot of projects, and have reclaimed my passion for the art form because of this quilt. This quilt is unlike any quilt I have done before or since in that it is put together in strips, one strip at a time to makes the design, requiring lots of planning that I usually don\’t do.

This one is also hand quilted.

Classic Quilt

I should plan more when I do layouts and designs. I have always admired the rainbow quilts and the warm cool quilts, just because you know what it will look like before you make it. I sort of just go with it and every time I finish a top it\’s a surprise to me.


Maybe I like it that way…Maybe I should plan one and see if I like it better that way. We will see.

  1. Wonderful choice of colors and a great simple design! And hand quilted?? *Love*!!! It's not done often enough in my opinion! Thanks for sharing!


  2. i admire your willingness to improv piece if you will — i'm such a planner and usually write out all my own patterns before creating a quilt. i love the fact that you hand quilted it – did it take you a long time? I imagine that it did, I dont know if I have the patience for that, despite the fact that I think it gives a quilt such a nice touch (I can barely stand sewing on the binding by hand!) =)
